I would not recommend the 60 grit, it has a very hard binder and is actually slow to remove metal but will produce scratches that make life no fun.

Do yourself a favor and spend the extra to get Atoma and don't waste the time with the Chinese version or the DMT. The Atoma is light years ahead of the rest and you won't be sorry!

I'd also go for the 150 bamboo. While the 60 grit Nubatama ume will remove it faster, it is a stone best used for even more metal removal and then you would still want the 150 to remove the 60 grit scratches. I usually don't use a diamond plate for this as I recommend just going perpendicular to the edge until the chips are gone and then putting a new edge on it. Doing this technique to a diamond plate wears the plate excessively.

If you were doing this regularly then the 60 would be a great stone to use. Now if your friend keeps trashing your knives or you get 'knives from hell' to repair, consider him buying the 60 grit next.
