The knife at the link should serve you well in breaking down large hunks of meat and not break the bank. While I do not have this particular knife I do have a few Old Hickory knives. (#705 set). Very easy to maintain and not a huge loss if you do your meat cutting outdoors and happen to drop one on pavement. I have a set just for grilling and BBQ. I also have USA made Chicago Cutlery knives, well over 40 years old and still going strong.
