I'll throw another recommendation behind the 810. I have the black with half-blade serrations, and thanks to the reverse tanto blade there's still enough smooth blade cutting area that you don't even notice the serrations unless they're needed.

For someone with larger hands, I like that the grip is "grippy" and is big enough to hold.
