Sure, anyone can own knives-but this is really a KNIFE. As in high quality, durable Chef material. And you don't even have to be a pro Chef to use it, just think of all the great things you can do in your kitchen with one of these knives.
When I was first starting out on my own years ago, I spent about a hundred bucks on a knife set (back then that was quite a sum of money!) but I found myself only using 1 or 2 knives from the set, tops. I still have those knives, but the remainder of the set got lost when I was moving several years ago. My desire has always been to own a really nice knife that will do exactly what I want to do in the kitchen-because I would honestly rather have one or two knives that suit my cooking needs than a whole set I barely use.
