    First ~3 synthetic stones

    I have caved to pressure from forum members to sharpen my own knives (in truth, I have been encouraged by kind members who messaged me with guidance and supportive words). I know that 'recommend me beginner stones' has been done to death, and that nobody wants to rehash what has already been...
