    Hi everyone,

          I'm new to chef talk... and proper sharpening with whetstones. I was wondering what would be the best set up for sharpening my mac professional santoku, my fujiwara fkm 240mm gyuto, and my mac honesuki. I'm a professional line cook, but i have only used western knives and had them sharpened professionally,I would like to learn more about free hand sharpening and which stones to begin sharpening with ease, i have also made an impulse buy of the 400/1200 stone from jck.

    you can make do with your combo stone and just add maybe a 3k-6k, like say a suehiro rika 5k for finishing, polishing. 

    do check out jon broida's videos on youtube if you wanna see a real sharpener at work.
