The Nubatama 1k speckled Ume in medium hardness is an extremely versatile stone and would work well here and most everywhere else. From there you might find an Aoto (a natural one like an Aono aoto) a particularly good choice for a finer finish. It is a nice combination of toothiness and refinement and spans a nice range of grits. The Hakka is a finer stone that could follow an Aoto.
Japanese Natural stones are particularly suited to white and blue steels (including Aogami Super, a type of blue steel)
It's probably just me but I always use naturals for high carbon and synthetic for stainless, the Un-uniform partials in natural stones just work so well with the varying partial sizes in high carbon Steel
