either of these would be my first suggestion
don't know if you want stainless or carbon, I own a 180 tanaka, happy with it ootb edge needed work and the blade road wasn't ground 100% perfect but it cleaned up well on first sharpening..
don't know about the saji but I love g3 steel and his reputation is up there with the best so im sure I wouldn't disappoint.
for me a 180 is just big enough for a 10-12 lb salmon not sure if you need a bigger size or not?

I really dig my Tanaka. Its OOB sharpness wasn't great but it is a thing of beauty after you take it to the stones.
