Great starter kit. Hard to go wrong with Shapton GS. The diamond plate isn’t the greatest,but overall a good value and perfectly functional for stone flattening and coarse repair/reshaping.
I previously had never sharpened my knives and this set has worked great for me at a relatively low cost. The stones are super easy to use,no soaking or anything. It is nice to have the holder,the other things I could do with or without.
