The Norton IB-8 is NOT a good stone for any Konosuke. India stones are too slow and too scratchy for just about any of the modern, hard, strong alloys used in the kind of high-end knives made in Japan and by better western makers as well. And, just in case you're wondering, that very specifically includes HD2 and AEB-L.
You should be using water stones, preferably of very good quality. Naniwa SS is fine (presumably you're looking at Paul's Finest). I'm a big fan of the SS series up to 5K, and in my opinion you can't really do better for cheaper. There are other stones just as good at around the same price which provide some differences... but other than Knifewear, and Canadian Amazon, I'm not really sure where to look in Canada.
And if money is a big problem you, you can get away with a fairly inexpensive water stones for the time being. Even Steelex (Amazon) -- which is pretty far down the ladder -- would be better for your knife than Norton India.
Combination stones like the Naniwa 1K/5K, and King 1K/6K (if you can find one in Canada) are a way of saving money in terms of immediate outlay, but they are less convenient than single stones, more fragile, and get flattened to nothing so quickly that they end up being more expensive. In your case though, the lower buy-in might make a combination stone the best option.
Also, unless you're planning on doing some major profiling right off the best, or already took the coarse side of the IB-8 to the knife, you can get away without a coarse water stone for awhile.
The knife will take, hold, and perform better with a higher polish, for example I take my two HDs to 8K on stones, and sometimes finer still on loaded strops. But when you're talking about a Konosuke laser "perform better" needs some context. Your Kono will perform brilliantly at the 5K level.
My suggestion is bite the bullet, buy the Naniwa 1K/5K combo, and use it til you master it. When you do, your sharpening skills will be good enough for you to not only add a coarse stone but to think about whether you want to switch to separates.
Be aware, that you NEED some method for flattening before you use any water stone for the first time. The least expensive, decent method is 3M drywall screen. Messy as hell, but cheap and effective. A lifetime supply of screen can probably be had for around 15 CAD.
Hope this helps,
