You can try to sharpen that $20 cusinart santoku you bought at walmart all you want, but it most likely will take a large amount of time and effort. IMO it's just not really worth it to dish a stone that much on an inexpensive knife.
On the other hand if you are one of the many on this site that have a collection of fine japanese knives then by all means go ahead, but I suggest sharpening a "beater" first, just something to practice on before you tackle the real deal.
