With that budget, you could go to Japan and buy your knives.

I love Japanese knives.
Have a look around for a professional knife maker in your country who specialises in Japanese knives. You will get a one of a kind set.
Most specialists use high carbon steel and these need to be cared for by oiling them regularly as they get an orange rust that polishes out.
You will need a good set of wet stones to keep the blades sharp. Don't skimp on quality there.

These aren't cheap, but they sure are pretty, and appear to be very good quality, and made in USA. Just found this site - Middleton Made Knives — Home

Want more to amaze you, made in USA - Chef Knife Boutique - Kitchen Knives for the Artist Chef : New West KnifeWorks

This site not only has some magnificent knives, but titanium chop sticks as well - SPECIALS Japanese Knife,Japanese Kitchen Knife,Japanese Cutlery,Japanese Chef's Knives.Com

And of course, the ones I own and love, and my professional chef son loves as well, though mine isn't the hammered. He states that his Type 301 hammered knives are both the sharpest, and most easily controlled knives he has ever uses. The handle design, though smooth SS, has a geometry that eliminates slippage in your hand, and provides max control. With the great edge retention, and how sharp they are, I love my 10 inch chef's knife. - P-18 HM CHROMA type 301 hammered Chef cnife - CHROMA Cnife

Hope this at least gives you some knives to think about.
