Hey Mark,

Was wondering which stone, or stones, you would recommend for the richmond aogami super gyuto? Starting to lose my edge and would love to get that knife back to its awesomeness.

Thanks!

This simple starter set using the Arashiyama stones is a good one to learn on and they work great with my AS gyuto.

Also, I really like the shapton glass stones for learning to sharpen since they're easy to use: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/sh6pcstset.html

They Arashiyamas are still two of my favorite stones.

As a more general answer, I'd recommend a 1,000 and a 4 to 6,000 grit stone.

CKTG has many great options.

Nubatama 1K ume and Rike 5K, strop on bare leather to remove the burr leaves a very clean edge, toothy yet refined. If I am not using my J Nats, that is my standard combo for sharpening pretty much any of my knives.
