when i cut potatoes before planting, i am not concerned about making the pieces the same size. thats too ocd for me. rather, my cuts are determined by where the eyes are sprouting. you want at least one eye per piece. why have two equal size pieces where you have five eyes sprouting on one, but only one eye on the other piece. i'll try to even it up a bit, and have at least two eyes on each piece. on a large potato, i may cut it into three or more pieces, and each piece will be a different shape or size. golf ball to egg size potatoes i will usually leave whole.
