Great useful info. I've been watching the videos on facebook with sharping techniques; but I doubt I have all the money to buy all those different kind of stone grits. Any suggestions would be great.

Thanks for the question ntaubs. We should start a separate topic for this question. What are some of the bare essentials? There are articles about this in the newsletter also. Please check back later today, I should have some info up for you.

Knife Fanatic you ask and shall receive. So my pick for an inexpensive two stone combo would be a:
Bester 1000
http://www.chefknivestogo.com/bester1000.html
or the Shapton GlassStone 1000 Grit
http://www.chefknivestogo.com/shgl10gr.html
and
Arashiyama 6000x
http://www.chefknivestogo.com/takenoko8000.html

Personally still like the Arashiyama 6000 as a finishing point for most double bevel kitchen knives. For me it leaves enough teeth and polish combo, it requires little soak, and has the benefit of natural clay in the mixture with the abrasive.

If I could do a 3 stone combo at the best price to performance ratio:
Beston 500x
http://www.chefknivestogo.com/beston500.html
and
Arashiyama 1000
http://www.chefknivestogo.com/ar10gr.html
and
Arashiyama 6000x
http://www.chefknivestogo.com/takenoko8000.html

Of course a felt deburring block is a huge plus over wood or cork.

Usually I don't recommend this even though mark doesn't sell them I stll use my 4/8k combo norton. 4k norton is one of the best cutting stones in the world Barr non I use it on cpm154 and couldn't do without it. Rumor is mark may have these soon but if someone needs to know where to pic one at a good deal and a great guy pm me. Jmbullman

I should really make a 2pc set out of the Arashiyama 1K and 6k......

That would be a nice starte set. I could throw in the deburring block and 20X loupe for free.

I would say that a 1k/6k combo is the way to go. It's how I started 6 or so years ago with a King set up. You'll be able to get much better edges off of it than anything out of the box, (with the exception of customs or very high ends) For those just starting out, it's a good start and normally you're not lowering bevels and hopefully taking out major chips, so you shouldn't need a 500 stone.

The November issue of the newsletter had a beginning sharpening article that's pretty good.

Now I gotta go sharpen before I go to bed. It's becoming a sickness lately.
