Knife Advice for Offset Knife Fan

Hi all! Trying to wade through the knife world and after extensive research, I’ve only confused myself even more. After reading some really helpful threads on here, I decided to ask for some help!

I am by no means a well accomplished home cook, but I get by and cooking and baking is one of my favorite hobbies. When I got into cooking about two years ago, I bought a F Dick offset 7 inch serrated knife. I couldn’t say how much I truly love that knife- it’s light, I like the grippy handle material, I love the offset, but still it’s able to stand up to most things... however, I feel like I need something new.

I have small hands, and thus prefer lighter knives. I’ve never really loved any of the more traditional chefs knives I’ve tried- Wusthof’s 8 inch chef’s knife was WAY too heavy for my liking and bulky in my hand, I felt like I had no control over it. I’ve tried other lower end chef’s knifes when cooking at friend’s houses and I’ve never liked them. I bought a roughly 7 inch Sanoku blade knife (from a box store, it’s nothing fancy- Chicago Cutlery) and hate that too- though it just may be low quality.

Are there any offset knives on the market that are not serrated? I want to work on my dice/knife skills and I feel like my serrated knife is not doing me any great favors with that- yet I just have never found anything that feels quite as good.

I’d love to be able to test them, but I live in a rural area and probably will order online, so I’d love to have any advice or recommendations. Thanks!!
