Sounds like all my favorites have been mentioned. For slicing brisket you can't beat that 12" granton edge Forschner Slicer PimpSmoke mentioned. I have a Henckels chef knife that has been a work-horse & i have a Cutco skinning knife that i've used for field dressing several deer & wild pigs.
Gonna bookmark this post cause more knives are great ideas when my wife or kids ask for gift ideas.
