    I would like to pick up a splash and go water stone in a medium grit range, a general all purpose stone. The stone may be used as a lead in to a finer , yet to be determined stone.

    My knives are Germans, Forschners, and Mac's.  I also have a few pocket knives that are some of the newer alloys, but not the high-end exotics.  In decending order of importance :

    Splash and go ( 2-3 minute soak is fine)

    Fast Cutting

    Slow dishing

    Ease of flattening

    Price

    I purposely left out feedback as I havent used enough different types of stones to say if that's important or not. I'm most familiar with Indias and Arkansas stones. 

    Thanks in advance for any info you can provide.

    I have Shapton glass stones 1K and 4K and both do a very good job.  I'm thinking of selling them only to try soakers, but these are really convenient and easy to transport.
