Hi Ron,

This Arashiyama starter set has two stones that are excellent and cheap. It comes with a deburring cube and a magnifier and it's a great set if you're just starting out.

We also have this 5pc set that has our most popular sharpening stones. You get an extra stone here:

With sharpening it's very much you get what you pay for. Higher end stones such as Shapton, Chosera's or really good naturals are expensive as they perform better too. Get a middle range stone and you'll get a mid-range price.

I like Shaptons myself and love the Chosera 1k and 3k.

You cannot go wrong if you follows Marks lead and choose one of his sets that he provided links to.

I love trying different stones, I love Shapton Pro, Glass and Naniwa Chosera.

My favourite stone so far, without doubt is the Chosera 1K, it is superb.

As for an economical stone in the 1k range the arashiyama 1k is really hard to beat http://www.chefknivestogo.com/ar10gr.html Reminds me alot of the chosera1k being fast,muddy,and slow dishing.I go from it to either the arashiyama 6k or sigma power select 6k and come out with outstanding working edges.

+1 for the Arashiyama stones. They are my favorite and produce a nice natural-like finish on a wide range of knife types. I would recommend using them together though as they perform the best that way. Add a Naniwa 150 Omura and you have a good basic sharpening kit.

As a matter of fact the 6K Arashiyama is one of my must have products, Jason I remember you recommending it before so I've always had ny eye on it.

This Nubatama Bamboo gold 1k stone is a real bargain for what it does. It should be more expensive. Still pretty much of an undiscovered stone, it is hard like a Shapton, fast and has a good feel to it. Check out the video.

Another 'sleeper' is the 5k Nubatama Bamboo. Excellent finish! Especially for carbons, but works great on stainless too. Excellent feedback and plays very nicely with naturals too. Again, check out the video.

Both of these stones were added to the Bamboo series after the initial Nubatama stones were announced, so they haven't had as much time to develop their reputations.
