In that price, yeah, your options are quite open.
As franz said, a custom isn't out of the mix and certainly a great choice.
Anything hand made from Konosuke would be incredible.....the Fujiyama line, the Ginsan line, etc.

I mean....there are so many choice it would help to narrow it down a bit. Do you want/need stainless, do you have any other likes/dislikes (shape, flat profile, narrow, tall, etc.).
