Hi folks, can anyone recommend a reasonably priced chef's knife? It needs to hold it's edge for a good time and have a largish handle for my big mitts, I've tried a few from Amazon but they've all disappointed in some way so I thought recommendations was the way to go. Ta!

Thanks saltytom, but a bit more than I want to pay. I googled "Best chef's knife for large hands" and the Victorinox fibrox 10 inch chef's knife came out top so I think I'll give that a try.

I bought a ridiculously cheap offer set of Richardson KYU knives at Aldi a few years ago and they have been magnificent.Dont think the handles are unusually large , but OH has no problem with it and has fairly big hands. The seem to come on offer every now and then . Not really noticed that much difference when using between them and our two Sabatier ones .

Have you tried JML direct. I seem to remember them advertising super sharp knives on T.V
