I'm going to make a couple guesses that you prefer stainless steel and are open to either a western type handle or wa handle.

There are actually over a dozen knives that would work for you. Hopefully you will get some other suggestions besides mine (Konosuke Ginsan Gyuto).

I love this knife. Made of Ginsan (stainless steel) and hard enough to hold an edge well. It's thin, light and will really work well for you and there is room in your budget for the saya: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/kogi24gy. ... 6CkkPldVVI

For sharpening stones I like the Shapton Glass stones if you're sharpening at work. They're light, splash and go and work well especially on harder stainless steels. You could pick up a 500 and 2K and that would be all you need: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/shapton-stones.html

Without a little more information, there are too many choices. Wa, western.....super duper thin, more robust......tall, short......lots of belly, no belly.....etc. This kinds of things can narrow it down. I'll link to a few I like, let us know what you do and don't like about them:

Great workhorse type knife.....carbon core, stainless clad:

Similar in a lot of ways to the Goko

Laser (super thin), semi-stainless, great knife:

A little more of a workhorse than the Kono Ginsan, the Kanehiro Ginsan http://www.chefknivestogo.com/kagigy24. ... 6CpILGmVfA

I like the Shapton Pro slightly more than the glass stones. Both are good stones. http://www.chefknivestogo.com/shaptonpro.html

I'd also add the Itto Ryu 240.
