What do people recommend for a mighty gyuto? (Could also be a chef or something else--doesn't have to be a gyuto specifically). Something for cutting up chickens, squash, trimming ribs, etc.? I'd prefer cheaper, but want something that performs reasonably well.

Are we talking western deba heavy or something between that and a Laser? Busting chicken bones is not something I do with anything short of a Western Deba.

If we're talking western deba, the Tojiro DP is a good choice:

A good heavier gyuto or chef's knife could be a simple Forschner:

I have a 10" Forschner chefs knife that I do all the jobs with that you mentioned, and it does them well.

Thanks for the ideas. The Tojiro western deba could be a good choice, but it's probably beyond my budget for a knife that won't be used that much.

I wasn't sure if the Forschner was robust enough for that kind of work.

I also use the 10" Forschner for bones and such. It is soft enough that chipping is not that bad and sharpening nicks out of the edge is very easy with a lower grit stone. Forschner is a great beater knife.
