I need some advice on a few stones.I have a 1K and a 5K Shapton Pro stones that I got from Mark. I like that they are splash & go and that I do not need to soak them before using them. Sometimes I only have a few minutes to play, I mean sharpen. ;)

Here is the list of knives I usually sharpen: some victorinox, some Stainless steel set from Wolfgang Puck, and I have a couple of Murray Carter knives.

I need a rough stone somewhere along the lines of 220-500 grit. What would be a good stone and grit before my 1K?
I was also thinking of a stone between my 1K and 5K, maybe 2K or 3K.

I would prefer to stick to the splash and go stones. What do you guys recommend?

Thanks in advance for your help.

I do love the plastic boxes :)

Is it too big of a jump from 320 to 1k?

320 pro to 1k pro is exactly what Shapton designed the series to do - there is no intervening stone.

Regarding the Shapton Pro plastic ventilated boxes, If anyone needs some, you can have them for $5 each plus shipping costs - just let me know what color(s) you want.
They do make for good stone holders if your stone is the size of a Shapton Pro with little feet on the bottom and an indentation that the stone fits in on the top.

BTW the GlassStones fit nicely in them too :)
