I would recommend mixing and matching between Fujiwara http://www.chefknivestogo.com/fujiwara-knives.html
and Richmond Artifex kniveshttp://www.chefknivestogo.com/riar.html
As far as getting carbon or stainless for Fujiwara, I'd recommend the carbon, although quite reactive at first, it takes and holds a great edge. Forcing a patina on it is a lot of fun and personalized the knife also.
I say to get these 2 brands because I believe they have a better chance at standing up to anything you throw at them than most other knives while still being good performers.
