Interested in trying something new.

Thank you for replying so quickly!

Are you right handed? Yes.
Do you know how to sharpen? I am a beginner.
Do you like to rock the knife or push cut primarily? I mix it up.
Do you want a stainless knife? Doesn't really matter. I've always owned stainless steel knives, maybe it's time to try something new.
Do you want to get a western handled knife or Japanese handle? Either will work. I am currently using a Wusthof Classic Ikon.
How much did you want to spend? 100-200

Do you mind if I post your question on our forum? No.
Thank you,

Here are a couple I would suggest you look at:

Sakai Takayuki does a good knife at a good price. They offer it in a wa handle or a western handle. These are stainless knives and easy to care for. Here is the section page where you can see them:

I love this knife by Konosuke. This is what I would get if I were you. It's thin, light, hard and super sharp out of the box. The fit and finish on this knife is great and the steel is top notch:

If you have some questions on other knives let me know. Shuns are pretty good knives but they're kind of common and not as good as the above in my opinion.

I can't wait for the Tanaka Kurouchi Wa Gyutos to arrive. These look good from the pictures I got. I know Shigeki worked hard on them: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/at14dipl.html
