I guessed so, I think it is just a office there. Yeah Im about an hour or two from any IKEAs and I live in the province where IKEA started.

But check out Victorinox, there knifes has yet to become mega popular and therefor cheaper then global.

That's a better choice than the set you were looking at. It will certainly be sharp right out of the box. Consider getting a sharpening steel to keep the edge honed. Steels don't actually sharpen the blade but they do help the edge last longer between sharpenings.

I hope you decide to get a sharpening stone also. I like the two-sided kind. 200/1000, oil or water, for knives in bad shape or starting a new edge from scratch. 4000/8000 waterstone for maintaining an edge.

Lots of good information on YouTube on how to properly use the chefs knife and maintain the edge.
