I need to start getting water stones

Hiracer | Jan 4, 201711:53 AM     12

I was given a "Japanese" knife for Xmas. Went out and bought a matching Japanese 3.5" parer to go with it.

I have the old fashioned Arkansas whetstones, which may have worked fine with my French carbon steel knives but are not going to cut it with 61-62 HRC SS knives.

I am thinking of starting with this sole stone until I know what I'm doing: Chosera 1,000 Grit Stone with a Base by Naniwa Chosera.

Comments, observations, other recommendations? I know nothing about these water stones. At this point I just want to avoid an expensive mistake, so second guessing myself here.

Thanks in advance.
