From what I've read here on the forums, the teruyasu fujiwara is an amazing knife. Melampus who is a very experienced chef and has a plethora of knives at his disposal says it cuts like none other. You can read his review here: teruyasu-240-gyuto-t4963.html

The link to the knife is here: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/funa24gyocha.html

This meets your criteria. Not too many options out there at your desired price point and carbon and custom handle.

This is slightly under your budget. However, it is one awe inspiring knife. If you search around this site, you will see how many of us love this knife. It is special, that is why it is almost always sold out. I'm a firm believer everyone should own at least one konosuke. This one is among the best, and definately one of the most adored knives on the sight. Everyone knows it's a Fujiyama. http://www.chefknivestogo.com/kofubl2fu24.html

Please tell us how it is! With two experienced knife collectors using it and saying "it cuts like nothing else" I'd be really interested in hearing a third opinion.

Where's the jealous emoticon?

Congrats on the knife!

My only advice would be, not to over sharpen. Carbon is so much easier to sharpen than stainless.
Lightly touch up when it needs it.

Did you get the 210 or 240? I know a lot of people prefer 240s, but you pay dearly for those extra 30mm.
