Daryl, Good Japanese water stones work great but they are costly and they tend to wear down quickly . They need to be maintained. I have used them in the past but not anymore. Too much trouble. Oscar

I think I've learned my lesson. I'm back to good old, affordable Arkansas stones, along with my Lansky angled rod system for quick touch-ups.
