Here is the Tojiro DP gyuto : http://www.chefknivestogo.com/tojiro-dp-f-8081.html
The one Mark linked to is the petty. Not sure if he meant to.
I personally have looked at it as a good option for a slicer as a future purchase for myself.
The gyuto is essentially the Japanese take on a western style chef's knife from what I understand.
A santoku is also a good all around blade shape, but typically it is shorter.
Here is a Tojiro DP 170mm santoku: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/todpsakn17.html
And the longer Richmond Artifex santoku: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/richmond1.html
So if you want something more like an 8" classic chef's knife a 210mm gyuto is the way to go, 240mm gyuto if you like closer to 10". For something a little shorter (6"-7"-ish) the santokus are nice. Arguably the most utility would be had by the longer gyutos, but I personally like santokus as well so I thought I'd throw them in the pot too.
The nice thing is that with the prices on these brands you can actually build up your collection as you go, stop when you like, and you'll have a nice set of knives at the end that you didn't have to sell any kids or internal organs for.
Edit: Oh yeah, I forgot to mention anything about sharpening! lol The thing about sharpening is that it can easily add up to more than the cost of a knife (or a set of knives!), but it is a worthy investment for the betterment of ALL of your knives. Kitchen knives, pocket knives, etc. will all benefit from it. As a matter of personal preference, I would suggest learning to hand sharpen your knives. Once you get the hang of hand sharpening it is not hard to do and many (including myself) find it very relaxing and therapeutic in a way.
This set is certainly NOT a $10 sharpening set by any means, but it comes with a nice, complete set of stones, a stone holder, a plate for flattening the stones, a felt block for deburring, a sharpie for helping you when learning to sharpen, and a jeweler's loupe so you can see what is going on with the edge of your knife as you learn: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/knshcoset.html
It is more of a sharpening system and with the selection of stones and stuff you get you won't need to add anything else unless you want to. With it you can do anything from sharpening, to fixing chips, to finishing a nice edge, to maintaining the edge.
At the very least I would suggest a 1k stone and strop, but I think the above set would serve someone new to hand sharpening VERY well and will be something you will have for years. Whatever you decide to do, PLEASE don't run these knives through a $10 sharpener!
