If you are used to a 10" Chef's knife I would stick with a 270 or possibly a 300. I would suggest you chose a petty or a pairing but if there are any budget concerns buy one first then see if you feel that you need the other. I'm in complete agreement with Chris's stone choice choice. The chosera stones up to 5k are affordable and of excellent quality.
