3000-6000 grit whetstone

bloodboy | May 17, 201904:51 PM     20

My niece has the below knives:

- Tojiro Shirogami ITK Gyuto 210mm
- Miyabi Mizu SG2 kit (3.5‑in Paring Knife & 8‑inch Chef's Knife)

She has this 1200 grit whetstone:

( She also has some Lamson knives that I bought her last year and I just bought her a Thiers Issard boning knife that is being shipped her in a few weeks. )

I am now thinking of getting her another whetstone. From my knowledge, she is supposed to be using this 1200 grit stone to learn sharpening. After she is comfortable with the process then a 3000-6000 grit stone is used to sharpen the knife. After she is comfortable once again, then she can move up to an 8000 (or higher) grit stone for her knives. We are at the second stage as far as I can tell.

Any particular whetstones that you feel are particularly suited for this situation? Thank you.
