I desperately want a nakiri. Which one should I get?

buttertart | Aug 20, 201109:40 AM     13

Like a dope, when I spent a few fairytale days in Kyoto staying at the Hiiragiya, aka heaven on earth, and a very happy morning in Nishiki market, I did not buy any knives there.
I am resolved to get a nakiri (which I did not know by name until quite recently, and thanks to this board). Ideally it would have the Japanese handle and be stainless steel, but just having seen this beauty; http://japanesechefsknife.com/HDSerie..., I am reconsidering that. Budget is up to $200. One from Kyoto would be nice, given the retroactive souvenir aspect.
Could I impose upon your patience and ask your (further) advice and counsel in the matter?
