Would like some input on what specific stones & rods I should be using to sharpen carbon knives?....particularly the Kohetsu Aogami Super with Blue Super.

Thanks in advance for the help!

A natural Aoto would be a very good start. Or any 1k-5k stone.

Any stone on the site will sharpen carbon. It doesn't take a special stone.

"Any stone on the site will sharpen carbon. It doesn't take a special stone."

I think the OP is asking for a more sophisticated response. I think he is hoping for an answer that is optimal, not minimalistic.

As a carbon steel, certain stones give more optimal results.

Are you interested in edge presentation and appearance? Edge longevity? Extreme sharpness, etc?

You mention rods as well. Aogami super is typically run at a higher hardness level so generally you would NOT want to use rods but rather stones and strops to achieve and maintain an optimal edge.

Shapton makes their HC series specific for carbons, aside from that, I'm not sure if there is much specifically designed for carbon. That being said, one of the greatest things about carbon steel is their general ease of sharpening with nearly everything. You can get any stone on the site and should receive good results.
