I agree 100%! You'll be FAR happier getting individual knives that meet your needs. My fav is a Nenox S1, but there are many less-expensive alternatives. All one *really* needs is a chef's knife/gyoto, a paring/utility knife, and a bread knife. The most important factor is how a knife feels in your hand. As long as you have the goods to maintain a sharp knife(knives) and a safe place to store it, you can do almost everything with 1-2 knives.
I'll second Ouch's recommendation of japanesechefsknives.com. Their service and pricing is excellent. For a flat $7 shipping charge, your order will arrive from Japan in a couple days.
