1000g water stones ()

I use a King 800 stone followed by oil stones. The King stones are more sophisticated than many of the early 21st century stones. King stones can be made to cut more or less aggressively depending on skill of the user. So you first use it to remove wear, then get it in nice shape for the oil stones.

Lately there has been an emphasis on aggressive cutting, with no thought to the condition of the edge.
