Buying Sharpening Stones

1jc19 | Jan 25, 2013 08:45 PM

I'm looking to buy a few sharpening stones. I'm a complete newbie when it comes to sharpening knives with a stone. I'm not sure what I should look for in a stone. I don't want to spend too much and I want to be able to sharpen knives freehand.

I found the Messermeister one that looks to be the cheapest for 400 and 1000 grit.

What grit stones should I use to sharpen Damascus-steel knives?
