    See what you think of something like this It is available in stainless or carbon (can rust) steel, and the owner of the shop is a vendor here--and most knowledgeable too so you could call and get better advice than I can give. He also has a wide variety of knives that may be better suited and will spend time on the phone to help guide you.
    Cheers

    Reason I ask is if you are just cutting Maki you don't want a yanagiba. A sujihiki may be more versatile for you. For a beginner sharpening a yanagiba may prove a challenge as well.

    You've got about $800 there, I would say to use up to $250 on a gyuto like this:

    or :
    http://www.japaneseknifeimports.com/...-wa-gyuto.html

    You can go under $200 on a suji like this:
    http://www.japaneseknifeimports.com/...-sujihiki.html

    or perhaps something a little nicer for a bit more like:
    http://www.japaneseknifeimports.com/...-sujihiki.html

    about $110-150 on a petty like this one:
    http://www.japaneseknifeimports.com/...-wa-petty.html
    or:
    http://www.japaneseknifeimports.com/...-wa-petty.html

    and maybe like $80 on a pairing knife like this:
    http://www.japaneseknifeimports.com/...ing-knife.html

    That leaves a good bit left over for a few stones too.

    Alsol how great is that bread knife? Is it, this great?

    I love that knife!!

    Thanks for the info, before this I was looking at the Wusthof Ikon Cook's Knife with Blackwood Handle, w/ matching paring knife. Below is the cleaver I have
    http://www.amazon.com/Winco-Chinese-...I10L3HEW3XMTVY

    My current bread knife and Santoku are Farberware. The bread, chef and paring are a cheap J A Henckels.

    After seeing this bread knife video, I think the will donate everything I have and start from scratch.

    Would you have any recommendations if I wanted a German profiles ? Just want to get an idea of what the other side of the coin would look like with a german profile and a western/yo.

    Way over priced for a mediocre vg10 blade.
