Seeing as how Takeda has a high HRC, have you thought about Shapton Pro?

This is a very good set to get started. http://www.chefknivestogo.com/shpro3pcset.html
A couple of these stones are out of stock but I wouldn't expect them to be out long.

Matthew - most people start with a stone in the 1000 grit range, then add a higher grit stone or stones for refining that edge. They also usually get one or more coarse stones for situations that require more steel removal. The set Jeff mentioned is a good one and includes pretty traditional grit levels for the coarse/medium/fine stones.

Your knife will take even higher levels of refinement, should you want to explore those options in the future.

Another 3 stone option is this Nubatama set: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/nushset.html

For Takeda knives A 800 King stone will replicate the factory edge pretty well. For some of the finer cutting blades like a nakiri I go to my 6k Arashiyama but mostly finish on a natural Aoto or my green brick 2k.

Lately I have been using the Binsui on both the Banno & Sasanoha
http://www.chefknivestogo.com/binsui.html

It puts on a great matte edge with bite that lasts a very long time, I don't know why but noticeably longer than synthetics.
