I think Murray's knife would be a good one to own. If you like collecting good knives, owning one of Murray's knives is a good choice. I do think for $400 you could do a little better.
The western custom Hiromotos we have on the site right now are hard to beat. Excellent blades combined with beautiful custom handles make these knives special.
My buddy Adam did a group of these recently and you can check them out here:http://www.chefknivestogo.com/adam-marr-knives.html
If you want a wa handled knife and would like to try white #1 steel in a hand made knife I would go for this any day over most stuff in it's price category. It's about $100 less than Murray's knife and it's in a different league in terms of fit and finish and handle:http://www.chefknivestogo.com/kofuwh1gy24e.html
