I just purchased my first nice knife, a Masahero MV and want to take care of it so I am looking to purchase some sharpening supplies. Probably should've ordered these with the knife, but thats alright. I'm looking at CKtG and seeing that I have two options for about $130. I can either get their 5 piece kit which includes 3 stones, a magnifying glass and a de-burrer or I can get two stones (probably a 1200 and a 5,000) and a honing rod (The Idahone 12"). I'm wondering which of these two options is a better bet? I keep reading random things about honing rods being bad for japanese knives but I'm sure thats overstated. Which option is a better purchase?
