Lots of excellent choices.

 

If you want to use bench stones, and if you want to start with good -- as opposed to learner's -- stones, I suggest buying a Bester 1200 and Suehiro Rika; learning to use them, Bester first; and only after you've mastered the Rika, adding a Beston 500 for profile and repair. 

 

MAC is marginal for taking more polish than a Rika will give, but if it's polish you want try a Takenoko (aka Arashiyama) instead of the Suehiro Rika.

 

Round out the kit with a 12" Idahone Fine (aka "1200") hone. 

 

Enjoy your new knives,

BDL
