I've been looking for some natural stones for my recent new knives, some Takeshi Saji Ironwood (R2 steel) and a Mizuno Tarenjo Akitada Wa-Gyuto.
First of all I'd like to know what do you guys think about Takeshi Saji chef knives anyone had experience with one? Are they worth of the money?
But lets go to the part that interest!
I'm about buying some natural stones from chefknivestogo.com and already selected 3 stones that I think is enought for me but I'm not sure If i selected well.
My knives are sharp so I dont think I need a grinding 100-600 stone I can start with a 1K. I wanna spend $250 or less but if it pass a little I'll not mind.
For a Begginer Sharpening stone (1k-2k) I've selected 2 options:
http://www.chefknivestogo.com/binsui.html (1-2k grit)
I'd go with binsui since is a thinner grit and closer to higher stones, but please correct me If I'm wrong.
Second Stone: Since there's not a 4-6k step stone I'll have to jump to a 8k stone, well at least my final stone will not be a 10k but a 15-20k
If someone see outher good option one the stone list tell me please.
And for finishing...
Got this option from the site...
But I think is better..
Well, I could have aready selected my stones and already bought but the problem is the website does not give informations about all stones and the support in my opinion is very lazy and poor in information, they barely answered my emails =\ sad...
