i started with one king and naniwa truering block
and i continued with natural stones aka, binsui, honyama, rozsutec,nagura, aoto from ebay (bad quality - but cheap)
after short time i tried aluminium oxide cerax and some ceramic stones from member of one knife forum
next on wish list was naniwa chosera,bester,shapton so 1st pick was chosera and 2nd pick was shapton
after a time i always use just shapton so i sell most of my stones
- maybe ill buy some bester stones in future

King 1000 and 6000, strop on newspaper, have been freehand sharpening for about 3 months. Finally starting to see results I am happy with, but not where I want to be yet either.

I use my chosera 400, 1k, 3k, 5k, 10k then follow up with leather strop.

At work I use a 1k/6k combo stone from Korin then a 8k followed by another chosera 10k (great stone)

For quick touch up Ill either use my fdick reg. steel or if theres time the 8k
( despite what ppl say about japanese knives and steels I feel its bs Ive been using them for years and have had nothing but good results)Image
