I think the ezelaps are better quality than my dmt gear.

I bought some shaptons last year ish. 1k/5k/8k. I don’t have a sink in my shop so I wanted something ready to go with a squirt. The stiction can be pretty bad on the 2 higher grits but I’m used to it. They work very well for me though.

I don’t use diamond stones as part of my process. They are there to flatten the water stones on the rare occasion, and for setting up new irons or heavy primary bevel work. And odd and end stuff.

I could use just the 1k, 8k and strop if I needed for regular sharpening.

Edit: find what works for you. If you can afford it go for it. I hear the sigma power 2s (or something like that) are preferred over the shaptons. I think you have to get them from Japan though.
