    Don't the sabatier nogents have full sized handles on their 6 inch slicing knives?

    1+ on Opinels. Used them for years. Even the stainless ones aren't bad.

    Mine is a touch smaller than my 10" slicer, but much smaller than my chef's. The wood measures 90mm end to end and ~10mm in width.

    I've lost many a nice pocket knife, which I use for box cutting at work...bought an opinel carbone #5, for cheap, and have had it for, figures.
    The difference between try and triumph is a little "umph"! NO EXCUSES!!!!!!!

    My wife got me a set of the olive wood handled parers from sabatier. I have to say I like them a lot. I use them more than any paring knife I've had before. the handles seem to be good sized, but I guess I've never measured them.

    Unfortunateky Koki is sold out, but the next time he gets some in, do give an Itou 65mm paring knife a try. I got the ironwood handled one, 5th from the top (together with the ironwood "sheepfoot", 3rd from the top), and the handle on the 65mm is really big. Very, very comfortable!
