I have been using tojiro-DPs As my primary knives for one year now, I have gyoto 300mm, Western deba 240mm, nakiri and small petty. I think they have been amazing compared to knives, I've previously used (some very cheap basic knives). Recently I've started to read more about carbon knives and just ordered masamoto KS WA gyoto 240mm.
I've been using king duo stone 1k/6k for tojiros and liked the result so far. But now since I'm starting to upgrade my knives, I've been thinking about upgrading my stones aswell. So what stone set you would you recommend? I've read lot of good things about shapton glass stones.
Are they the best to get, or atleast close to it? Would three stones being 1k,4k and 8k be good enough set, or is it necessary to get greater variety of stones, like 500, 1k, 2k, 4k, 8k? Money really isn't problem, but I really don't want to waste it for the extra, if I don't really have to. Is 8k fine enough, or should I get even finer ones?
Thanks for everyone's thoughts and insight!
