Dear Mark,

I am looking to "up my game" in the world of knife sharpening. To date I have used numerous techniques and stones but continue to be fascinated with the water stone approach. I like the human interface rather than mechanical precision of something like a WEP system. My only water stone experience is with a king 1000/6000 combo. I am familiar with Murray's C's exceptional ability with this stone (realizing I'm a long way off) but have been reading great things about chosera and shapton Pro. IF better stones can somewhat compensate for less refined technique, I would like to discuss putting a set together that would enable me to achieve exceptional edges on anything from my Wustoff's to custom knives of M2 and D2 steel ( I could not seem to get exceptional results on M2 using the king, however the wustoff s respond marvelously). Any help would be greatly appreciated and if possible, a phone call to iron it out. Thank you.

Clint

Hi Clint,

Both the shapton pros and the choseras are better stones than the kings. You should get better results with them. Each stone series has a different abrassive so they respond differently to different steels. Better stones usually will handle higher hardness knives a little better. Try the shaptons. I think they will work for the stuff you own.
