Choseras do not need a nagura stone.

The idea of different grit naguras is to avoid using one coarser than the stone itself. A 1K nagura makes no sense on a 5K stones, for instance - why contaminate the stone?
But I can't think of any man made stone that needs a nagura.

That's why I cut stones from the stones themselves.

Can you please explain what, "...contaminate the stone..." means?

The Naniwa 'classical' Choceras came with a 600 grit stone which is really a cleaning stone, but it is often incorrectly referred to as a nagura. Although some use it as a cleaning stone, I find it completely unnecessary. A nagura even loosely described incorporates it's mud into the slurry. A cleaning stone's mud gets washed off and is never included in the slurry.

So, if you have a smaller piece of a synthetic stone and use it to generate slurry - is this useful? Yes, it can be. It can generate a bit of slurry. I find it useful on soe stones - it cuts a bit more quickly, giving you more fresh abrasive and it gives you a smoother scratch pattern on the stone.

Unlike natural stones, the mud on synthetics doesn't tend to break down, so in this respect it is unnecessary. I wouldn't discourage anyone from using a matching synthetic stone, but IMO is is not at all essential. Fun and a change in feedback, but not essential.
