    Sounds like you want thin, stainless, western handled and not over about $300 for the gyuto. I would go with Gesshin/Ashi at Japanese Knife Imports (Jon is great to work with). The steel takes and holds a very nice edge and it is very easy to sharpen. I recently sharpened one and the edge was free of burrs after the 1k stone. It was a thing of beauty. The fit and finish on the knives is very, very good. If you don't mind going a little less stainless, I might opt for a Kikuichi TKC from Chef Knives to Go or CarboNEXT from Japanese Chef Knife.

    +1 go with the ashi, gesshin ginga. Great performance, great steel, very good fit&finish. Best buy in stainless IMO. Also the Konosuke HD series is very nice if you like wa handles.

    Carter SFGZ Riveted Handle Funayuki if you're open to a smaller, but better performing knife with a carbon steel core, and can wait until the sale.

    Every once in a while, Murray Carter has a good sale on to clear out his in-stock wares. It's either annual or semi-annual, I'm not sure which.

    CN really is one of the best values out there hands down. It will develop a slight patina, but nothing like an actual carbon knife. Definitely one of my favorite non-carbon steels.
