post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

after selling the first i bought(misono sweden 210mm gyuto), i ordered a 240mm Hiromoto AS gyuto.


now i want to buy whetstone to sharpen it,,,,
King 1000/6000(55$) or JCK Special Combination Whetstone 1000/4000(65$)?
if there is something else recommended in this price range?
Regards,
Uri

p.s: what is a Nagura Stone and do i need it?

1000 and 6000 is what I use on my knives, followed by cork to de burr, then strop.  I have a 200 that I use on really bad knives that have chips; for a new knife you shouldn't need this.

 

I'm planning to get the 140 grit no name stone on chefknivestogo for flattening other stones.  Again, for a new knife and new stones you shouldn't need this right away.

Now you'll have a nice knife.

Advice: do not buy combo stones. A year from now (and knowing you, may be the next week) you will buy single grit stones.

My advice for a first stone is Bester 1200.

There are a lot of Nagura stones, natural and synthetic.. I guess the one you're thinking about is a little stone with which you "build" a mud on the sharpening stone prior to actual sharpening. 

 

These are naturals.

 

This one is synthetic.

 

Really useful? I'm not sure. I've two and never use them.
