It is perfectly common to see thin Japanese blades with very small bevels. Why do you prefer them any larger?

Mercer sells a 6 inch Kullen Santoku. Similar in performance to Forschners for about $25. It's not the very best, but a serviceable knife that will take a more than adequate edge. 6 inches seems awfully short for a Santoku IMHO , but I'm not using it. Good luck.

I carry a Mac 7" Utility in my bag, and it's the sharpest knife I have for work. It takes an edge rather easily, and keeps one for an impressive amount of time. The knife is very light as well, so it doesn't fatigue my hand as much as heavier knives sometimes do. I like using it for more delicate work like segmenting lemons, dicing shallots, etc. It's great for cutting tomatoes too. And the fact that it has a rounded tip means co-workers won't grab it to open plastic bags... 

 

With that said the blade might be a little thin for the amount of melons you have to go through. I've done my share of breaking down melons, pineapples, even squash with my Mac, but probably not near the volume you have to deal with on a daily basis. Maybe the santokus you are looking at are a bit thicker; I haven't had personal experience with them, but I can tell you the utility knife is awesome.
