http://echefknife.com/yoshihiro-toishi-sharpening-stone-whetstone-1000.html is the stone I have now. I own the 1,000 and the 3,000, and am planning on getting the 8,000

Either one will do the job you need it to do.
I wouldn't shut out getting a 4000 at bare minimum to add to your collection.
Can call Yoshihiro, ask for Ryan, tell him Matthew Torres recommended you. He might hook you up with a coupon/free stuff.
Usually he sends me rust erasers, nice fish tweezers, knife oil, and coupons. Plus he gives great advice.
But that's the difference between calling and ordering online :P
