    No worries man. The atoma 140 + kitayama 8000 would be a nice pickup if you're looking to move up. I'm not familiar with their ohishi brand unfortunately.

    I'm pretty sure they sell the atoma without the stone holder in store, but I haven't been in the store in a few months now.

    If you want a set to bring to work, the shapton pro 2000 might be decent enough of an edge in a pinch at work, and its splash and go. I've only used shapton pro 320, 1000 and 5000 and liked those

    I bought the Big Green Brick and it works very well for me.

    The ohishi are bester stones to the best of my information.

    The atoma seems like a no brainer to me. After that I’m sort of out of help. I don’t know if they let you try out stones there but that’d be my suggestion.
