Dear Chefknivestogo, I'm Pedro just got introduced to sharpening my knives, I already have a wusthoff water stone grit 1000 and 3000 and I'm looking to improve further with a 8000 and a 16000 from shapton i was wondering if they go well together and using the 16000 as a finiching stone on my shun knives and also on a swedish steel knives, another question is if the DMT diamond plates work with the shapton stones, and my wusthoff stone. also how long will the order take to get to miami once the order is made.
Thank you very much really love your website and your videos from youtube on how to sharpen knives.
Regards
Pedro.

Hi Pedro,

I'm not familiar with the Wusthof stones you have but if you're happy with them there is no need to replace them.

If you want to refine the edge more the Shapton Glass 8K would work perfectly well as a finishing stone for your kitchen knives. I don't usually recommend the 16K for kitchen knife sharpeners. If you're sharpening straight razors then it will do well on those. Try a strop instead. It's much less money and easy to use and you can use it for quick touch ups between sharpenings in place of a rod. This strop set is less than half as much as the Shapton 16K: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/haamstkit.html

As for the DMT plate, yes it will work well to flatten all your stones. Get the 140 DMTXXC: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/dmtextracoarse.html

16000 is WAY overkill for a kitchen knife. 8k is pushing but many do it. This is one of my favorite finishers and should work well with your 3k, Arashiyama 6k: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/takenoko8000.html
