    Having worked as a chef I find Global knives too chunky for my small hands. I prefer Victorinox or Sabatier knives, I have a selection of both however the Sabatier handles broke so my OH has custom made new wooden handles. The Sabatiers are nearly 40 years old!!

    That is one of the reasons for paying a bit extra for good knives - get the right set and they can and should last a lifetime (even for a professional).

    We've got some ceramic ones, which seem to cut through anything like magic - I am no longer allowed to touch them.

    I assume that it is a court order that forbids it - but would it be too much to ask why this rule was brought in?

    but don't forget Sabatier is a type not a make. There are Sabatier knives and there are Sabatier knives.

    Mostly self injury - I really don't notice until it's too late and I have a tendency to pick up the wrong end.

    Yes, I once had a set of "sabatier" knives and they were utter garbage - had blunt spots on them from the box and didn't hold an edge well. I think the brand was "V Sabatier"
    The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair.

    If you don't like sharpening knives cheap ceramic ones will hold an edge for a very long time, but you have to be careful with them as they are brittle so can chip or break if dropped.
    I can't recommend any specifics as the ones I got for presents for a couple of people were for Deal Extreme a few years ago, but they seem readily available from Amazon now

    Also they have to be ceramic knives and not ceramic coating (my parents-in-law fell for a coated set), you can normally still see the metal at the sharp edge on the coated ones.
    Here is an example of what not to get:
