    What grits/stones should I add?

    I got a stone set for Christmas. It is a smiths set with corse and fine diamond stones and an Arkansas stone for polishing.



    What else should I add to the collection (extra corse for rebeveling, a strop or two, etc.)?

    I would suggest a Japanese Water Stone in the 800-1200 grit range to quickly put an edge on a very dull knife.
