Sharpening is hard, at least until you get the trick of it.

I have a dmt 10×4” coarse stone that I use for stuff that needs some aggressive work. I wish I would have gone extra coarse. I went with the 10×4 because it is also great at flattening 8×3 waterstones.

I also have an 8×3 fine dmt stone which I use as the first step in sharpening for normal use. After that I go to an 8k grit Norton waterstone. I actually got the 4k/8k combo, but I rarely use the 4k side.

After that I will strop.

Sharpening has pretty good deals from time to time. That is where I got my stuff.
