I've found this set on Amazon and have a prime account which is nice for free 2 day shipping. Would the slicer be an okay alternative to the boning knife for immediate use?

The Henckels at BB&B is their mid-grade knife. Worth what you'll pay. I have a 10" Decter-Russel Sani-safe, my preferred workhorse travel knife that I keep to protect my better knife from renter. If you really are a spend once guy, I consider Wusthof or Messermeister the better western style knives. They are far better than any listed so far. Much better than Victorinox or DR. But 2x cost
I looked hard at the DR knives and am still considering them. This is the one I was looking at but Amazon doesn't have a lot of information listed on them.
