I agree with Ken Schwartz that you would find the Nubatama 150 to be a great addition. I love mine. As for VG10 and other hard stainless steels, I really prefer the entire line of Shapton Glass stones to anything else. I find all of the Shapton glass stones to be aggressive stones and a relief when dealing with hard stainless steels. If you prefer stainless knives, I would seriously consider building a Shapton Glass series of stones, starting with the lower grit stones like the 220 and work your way up.

Here is the Nebatama for those of you lurking and don't want to hunt for the stone we're talking about:

Here are the Shapton Glass Stones.

The Shapton Glass Stones are really excellent stones and I recommend them all the time for beginners and serious sharpeners alike.
