This isn't going to make it any easier, but... Richmond Ultimatum M390
, and Ultimatum 52100
The Ultimatum's blade-forward weight distribution takes some getting used to, but once you do it's beyond amazing
. It's got a great profile, takes a great edge, and is robust enough to use for any normal prep short of hacking through bones. It's a knife you don't need to put down. I rate mine as high as my Kono HD -- although of course, they're very different.
Can't say for sure, but it's possible that the weight and balance (hah!) suit big hands better than small because we the large handed can push our pinch further forward.
I'm a carbon kinda guy, and mine is a 52100. Don't get me started on how much I like the alloy because it's a little too embarrassing when everyone's sober. On the other hand, I understand the M390 can go for pretty much forever from sharpening to sharpening -- which is important to some people.
