Hey, I am planning on spending around $350 to get the best proression of sharpening stones for my brother. I would like them all to be made by the same company, he is a little weird that way. And also all the same line, so no like shapton pro and also shapton glass. I was wondering what the best all around stones I can get for my budget are. I figured I would get 1 coarse stone somewhere between 220-400, 1 medium somewhere between 800-2000, and one fine somewhere between 6000-8000, and also 1 flattening plate (this can be a different brand). I have heard great things about the chosera's, shapton glass,masahiro, and gesshin. Should I include a honing rod or should I include leather stoping block??Which is better?Thanks for any advice. For reference, the only knife he has now is an old hickory chef knife. In the future I imagine he will add a combination of really high quality carbon and stainless knives.
