I fell down the sharpening rabbit hole and have a great stack of natural and synthetic stones now. Damn happy I do too.
What I learned is that sharpening stones are like food. What you like is what you like, and just because someone else says anchovies are the second coming rally might not be quite so great for you.
If you don't want to dive in too deep, go have a cheap meal so you have some reference points to start.
You might concider a cheap combo stone. I know this store sells a king 800/6k and another that starts with an I, something like imanchi. Try that out. See how it goes. Might you prefer harder stones? Softer? Ones that cut faster? You might like muddy stones or stones that smell like the rain Forrest. It's one way to find out. Other option is just plunge in and start consuming, my favorite way.
