The "low end" blades that might suffer from softer steel, poor edge geometry and less than stellar heat treat offer a good opportunity for improving skills. Taking a disadvantaged blade and significantly enhancing cutting performance can bring a greater sense of satisfaction than rockin out a killer edge on a perfectly designed cutting tool...which never gets old either. Keep at it! -Josh
No matter which you get you will need a flattening plate , id reccomend the 140 atoma , then that covers major repairs/reprofiling.
With the three aforementioned sets you can add more stones later on. The nubatamas in particular play well with both carbon and stainles steels , as well as making a great introduction into sharpening higher quality clad knives.
