CarboNext is something of a value leader for semi-stainless. If you do your own sharpening and value extreme sharpness, it's tough to beat at the price. For a lot more money the Kikuichi TKC is a slightly better semi-stainless.
The MAC Pro gyuto is an excellent knife, and so is the Masamoto VG. Those are the two I most often recommend when it comes to mass produced, stainless, yo, non-lasers. As Ice pointed out, you have an affinity for MAC Pros... so, why not?
If you're interested in a wa handled knife, semi-stainless or carbon, laser thinness, or if you want something sufficiently heavy-duty to be a "one knife that will rule them all," the recommendations change.
There are just so many damn knives from which to choose, we really need a lot of guidance from you, so that we can limit the field to a few knives which will really suit you. The more you give, the more you'll get back.
Feel free to ruminate. There's no penalty for not being right. In fact, getting something wrong and having it quickly corrected is a very good way to learn. Ask lots of questions.
