That blue is pretty cool, however I think I'll ask Mark what he'll charge to change to something else! I'm going to pull the trigger soon as I hear back from Mark on it and one of the pettys that has been recommended to me. As well as some stones.

Good to hear it.

Also, I personally think the blue handle is fantastic. Certainly not traditional, but not every knife has to march to the same drum beat.

What do you guys think for a stone set.

Okay the Shapton 1k are out of stock. Any equally good alternatives that aren't any more expensive preferably something that does need more than an hours soak or splash and go? I was thinking about Shapton 1k and 5k, a Diamond plate and sink bridge.

Or do you have a different suggestion that isn't more as expensive?

Update: I've got to say that I'm a bit overwhelmed by the kindness of the folks on this board. I just received a PM from another member that wanted to purchase the Anryu asking if I'd already made the purchase, because they didn't want to purchase it and see me miss out. Oh and I have made the purchase so that I didn't lose the opportunity. However, I still need to purchase sharpening gear.

While i do not have personal experience with this stone. The Shapton 1.5K http://www.chefknivestogo.com/shaptonpro1.html was recently a forum special, and seemed to be received well amongst those who reviewed it.

Tom, I really like the Shapton 1.5K. It also works great as a final stone on softer steel knives that don't need further refinement. You'll need a coarse stone to pull the weight when cutting new bevels, sharpening dull knives, thinning, etc. Personally I like the Shapton Pro 320 or the Shapton Glass 500. It's not ideal, but if you spend a little more time on the 1.5K, it will refine the 320 scratch pattern just fine. It's a natural to follow the Glass 500. These are all splash and go.

Don't overlook the coarse stone if you're dealing with dull knives that need some work. If you're practicing, you're likely working on dull knives ;-).

To save some money, skip the sink bridge and use either the Shapton Pro stone case, which has a built in holder on the top, or get the universal stone holder/140 plate combo: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/xxcdiplandun.html. The Shapton Glass stones fit the holder on the Pro case BTW.
