    I would recomm the 240 Fujiwara Chef knife,over Santoku or Sugi.The chef knife is more versitile + it has more steel in it,will last longer at work.

    Check Jon's site Japanese Knife Imports for freehand You-Tube tutorals.All you need is a medium stone.The King 1000 would be in your price range for knife & stone.The Bester 1200 is a little more,excellent stone.I know it sounds harsh but your coworkers get paid too,let them buy their own stone.If a bunch of different people are using same stone,it will get out of wack.

    Rough Stones: 400 grit and below, I wld use any cheap stones that can remove metal effectively . not necessarily water stones . Objective is to remove steel effectively. Has to be finished on at least 1000 Grit and above.

    So far I dont see any reason to use expensive stones for steel removal on the <400 grit.

    hv fun.

    Charge them $10/hour to use your stone.

    I defiantly would not let any of my co-workers use the stone. My brother also works with me, so I would let him because I trust him. But no one else, well I guess my boss, because if he breaks it he can go get a new one, he would probably just test it out and buy his own if he likes it.
