Hi,
First of all, Merry Christmas and wish you all the best!

I am from Macedonia and I was trying to register to your forum and ask some questions there, but I receive a message that I am spammer, so I will try here.
You don't deliver in my country, but I will have friends who will be in the USA from 28.12-06.01, so this is a great opportunity for me to order some products from your web site.
I am new in sharpening without any experience and a little bit confused so I hope that you will help me. I really want to learn how to sharpen my knives (I have German knives), but I am a professional dog groomer and I also want to try to sharpen my scissors and clipper blades, so my choice for the water stones is:

1. KNIFE SHARPENING COMPLETE 8 PC SET http://www.chefknivestogo.com/knshcoset.html which is good for starters I think. I would like to add to this set two stones. One is NANIWA SUPER STONE 3000 GRIT NO BASE http://www.chefknivestogo.com/nasust5gr.html and the other is IMANISHI 10000 FINISHING STONE http://www.chefknivestogo.com/im10fist.html

2. I will also order a knife from you. It will be petty knife from Tojiro 120 mm http://www.chefknivestogo.com/toitkshpe120.html or 150 mm http://www.chefknivestogo.com/toshitk15pe.html . I like them both and my question is which length is better for learning sharpening on it .


My budget is around 350 USD, so please suggest me if you have other opinions about the stones that I like, or you will suggest me something else.

I hope to quick answer, because I have to make my order on your web site.

Thanks in advance
Best regards

Hi Goran,

I enabled the cart to accept an order for you to Macedonia. Let me know if you have trouble but you can have us ship to your friend in the USA and have them bring the items to you too.

The complete set is our best selling set on the site. I'm not sure if you really need the other 2 stones.

I think the 150 petty is a better knife but either will be fine. I find petty knives a little more difficult to sharpen compared to taller knives like nakiris and santokus since small wobbling will have a larger impact on the edge. However with a little practice it's not that much trouble.

I'll second the 150mm length. It's the ideal length of petty IMHO, and the perfect length knife to sharpen.

However, why add the 3,000 grit stone in there? It's quite redundant to the Suehiro Rika. Save a touch of money and buy another knife. :)

I totally agree with Adam, the 150mm would be the best size petty and easier to learn to sharpen with.
I also don't think the 3000 grit stone is necessary. I would use that money and buy a strop kit.
