I've had this one for a few years and it works just fine without a big bite from the wallet:  https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01LWK7VIU/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I have been using the 10" version of this Dexter knife for about 25 years, and love it.
It is terrific for large pieces of meat such as brisket, because of the serrated blade, and is even great at slicing bread.
The price isn't bad, either.

Ditto on what Ron said, I'd recommend finding a local restaurant supply open to the public and seeing what they have in stock.

There are some extremely good deals at the ones I frequent but be cautious, you may end up with 1500' of aluminum foil or 100#'s of basmati rice... ask me how I know.

Foil I can resist but I have a definite weakness for lidded graduated storage containers.  [eek]

Of course, where else would you store your 00 Caputo flour?  [poke]

Easily resolved in the case of the 00 Caputo.... Pizza at every meal!  [thumbs up]

Thanks for all the suggestions - this is first I've heard of granton edge. Does it have advantages I will need?

Thanks

Webstaurant also has this VP 215 it was like the best purchase ever. Save cheese much better, sous vide like mad, marinate better, and defrost meat super fast.

When mentioning brisket, are we talking about pastrami?
When I used to make pastrami, i used a Victorinox that I originally bought for cutting wafer thin smoked salmon. It used to slice lovely thin pastrami too.

If it’s not pastrami, please excuse me.

@Sparktrician the 1 and 2 quart sizes are very nice for soups and stews.  [big grin]

The granton edge is designed to create an air pocket between the blade and the material being cut. Supposed to reduce friction, give a better release on the slice and reduce tearing in the stuff being sliced. Like most innovations who knows if it’s all that effective.

Mike,  About thirty years ago, my mother gave a long (maybe 14”?) serrated bread knife made by Chicago Cutlery.  I have used it for bread but it especially is useful for brisket.  I just looked it up and the company is still in business.  It’s not a pricy brand like Cutco or the German and Japanese brands, but it has held up well .

Speaking of brisket.....it’s time to get the Primo fired up !  [big grin]
