I hate to be a hater, but... knife sets are for suckers. You're getting 2 or 3 useful knives in this set and a bunch of filler, and a silly knife block that's going to eat up your counter space.
You need one good chef knife, a bread knife, a paring knife. Maybe a boning knife can be handy if you deal with a lot of whole fish, poultry, primals - my guess is that no one who's looking at this set does. And no one needs a slicer unless you do a ton of roasting - and then you want at least 10".
A 7.5" slicer is damn near useless, and I'd say the same for a 7.5" bread knife. Oh, and this particular slicer will be pretty much impossible to sharpen due it's bolster.
