The Wustof or Henkels brands always work well. There are a million out there - just get a comfortable angle & handle.
you just have to be careful when it comes to the Henkel brand.. the better quality knives have two men on them like this and are made in germany

the lower quaity ones have only one man on them and are made in china.

the bonus of about buying a henckels is that there is always a lifetime warranty on the knife whether it it a cheap one or a quality one.

Here is where I get my knives. www.cutleryandmore.com great prices and service on Forcshner knives. Look for a 12 in Granton edge slicer, for brisket. For ribs I like the 12 in cimeter.

I just ordered a couple of knives from this place-http://www.askthemeatman.com/cutlery.htm free shipping and some, what appeared to be, good deals if you bought some of their "combo's ". Forschner-victorinox..

ok on second thought, after going to the cutlery and more site....their prices are cheaper but they charge for shipping unless you order over certain amount. gonna have to cancel my one order and do some research!!

I sure like my Forschners, my former roomate, who is a professional Chef for large Resort at Lake Tahoe told me I couldn't go wrong with the commercial fibrox handles and the blades will remain sharp for quite some time even in commercial uses. As we say in Hot Rod lingo "Best bang for the Buck!"

I have a couple, they seem to hold up quite well for inexpensive knives.

I tried a forschner's chef knife and for the money they cant be beat. I bought a set for the kitchen in the firehouse, I know they wil get abused and I wont get mad about it. A good sharpening once a year and your set. Personally at home I have a JA henckles Pro S 10 pcs set and I added a 8" Boning 10" ulitity/boning and a 12" chef to fill my block up

the forschners are great in a high volume setting where the knife will get tossed around but the Pro S feels great in your hand and are sharpe as a MF'er

Here's a favorite that I use for just general cooking and slicing on the run. Sharp as hell and perfect for travel. I can't say enough about the edge it holds. Luckily, the company is just down the road.
