    Nice knives!

    What stones have you got now?  What is your budget for stones?

    As they are both wide bevel knives (or they very much look like it!), when you are sharpening and hitting the wide bevel, generally, muddier stones will preserve more of that contrast between the cloudy cladding and shinier core steel (kasumi finish). To that end, something like a Suehiro Cerax 1k or Bester 1.2k and Suehiro Rika 5k is a good start. But thats only if you care about maintaining aesthetics. Most any fast cutting stones will do in terms of sharpening.

    Please share more about your location and overall budget - that certainly affects stone options and suggestions

    Thanks for your answers Im living in the uk , I will say 200£ 250$is my budget , as for the use of the knife Im chef, I will use for times to times in quiet shifts just to enjoy the knifes , but i wont bring them in everyday that will be mostly for home use but even at home my wife and I still cooking a lot , I will also need advice on what kind of chopping board will be the best to use .
