I ordered the Kohetsu 210, Thanks,

Now, what's your best knife for cutting large cuts of meat and chicken, from $125 to $175 ?
Is it a Deba ?

Almost too little information to know what you're after.

A true deba, ala:

With a hollow back and single bevel is purpose built to disassemble fish.

It excels at nothing else IMHO.

I cut large pieces of beef and pork with a gyuto and/or a long sujihiki:

In that price range, this would be good option:

I like this knife A LOT more, but it's carbon and above the price range quoted:

It really depends on what you're cutting. There are lots of different types of boning knives and people are picky about them. Some like them with flex, some like them large etc...

A former butcher, for large cuts of meat, depending on the size
I frequently used an 18inch scimitar for big cuts, especially chucks, or primals...

However I do have a 6inch mercer boning knife that I will not part with for the life of me, the grip is what I'm picky about butchering gets pretty messy and wet, the grip on this knife doesn't get slippery which is what's important, if you're doing a lot of land animal butchering you'll need a decently long blade that has little to no flex, and a small knife for detailed joint working around.

For general slicing of say a large roast, get one of the aforementioned slicers :)

Any narrow blade. A wide blade causes dragging. So: large (210mm) petty. Sujihiki, désosseur.
