Mark,

I hoped you would comment on this thread "Stone set upgrade? " on the forum:

"I bought my first knives last year and have been sharpening them on a combination 1000/5000 waterstone I got at Woodcraft for $30 years ago. I have no idea what the make or quality is. I have a 2" by 6" combination diamond plate: 200, 300, 400, 600, which I'm guessing also did not cost much more than $30 when I bought it, that I use to flatten with. I added the American Strop Kit when I bought the knives, and made a sink bridge.

I am thinking better stones would make sharpening a bit easier and a better edge and am leaning towards the Mr Knife Fanatic set with the latte 400, the Green Brick of Joy and the Snow White 8000. The set is just under $200, but there are a couple of other options in this price range, including the Rikka 5000, Latte 400, Ume 1000 set, and the Shapton Pro 320, 1000, 5000.

I'd like to be able to sharpen my planes with the stones as well.

Any suggestions on which set?"

The comboI have is a 1000/6000 by Steelex, not a 1000/5000, btw.

Thanks,

David

Try the mr. knife fanatic set. It's got a good group of stones in it and I like the results: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/mrfa3stcoset.html
