Take a look at some of the vendors on this forum. They have a great selection of similar knives at many price levels and different steel types. Steeling these kind of knives are generally not recommended. Stones. There's a questionnaire here to fill out to help with choices. I suggest a little more research before buying.
Glad to see another looking for quality knives. For me they make cooking a pleasure.
When you encounter Japanese knives with lengths expressed in inches vice mm, you should run not walk away. +1 on filling out the "which knife?" questionnaire at the top of this forum. You will get recommendations (usually) based on your requirements. Have fun shopping.
