    SS 10K is an easy to stone to enjoy. You may even fall in love with it, I remember I did!

    The Kitayama is best AFTER most 10K stones or BETWEEN the Rika 5K and JKS 10K. You are better off going from the Rika 5K to the SS 10K and stopping there than going from the Rika 5K to the Kitayama and stopping there. After getting the SS 10K, I would pick up a Beston 500 or Gesshin 400 before the Kitayama, and from there, maybe try to get a used JKS 10K. Your stone progression for your yanagiba would progress like this as you acquire stones:

    Bester 1200 -> Rika 5K
    Bester 1200 -> Rika 5K -> SS 10K
    Beston 500 or Gesshin 400 -> Bester 1200 -> Rika 5K -> SS 10K
    Beston 500 or Gesshin 400 -> Bester 1200 -> Rika 5K -> SS 10K -> Kitayama
    Beston 500 or Gesshin 400 -> Bester 1200 -> Rika 5K -> Kitayama -> JKS 10K

    Just my opinion
    Beston 500 or Gesshin 400 will be my next stone buy for sure

    I have both the SS10K and Kitayama, but it's been a long time since the SS10K have seen any use.
    The Kitayama I use following JNS6K on hard carbon knives and I really like the edges it produce.
