These are my current favorite whetstones I use for my knives.
The Naniwa Professional are the new versions of the very popular "Chosera" line. The only different is they now lack a plastic base.
The Professional 800 grit is the fastest and most responsive what I have used, that gives a usable edge on its' own. An edge produced on the 800 grit can go straight into any home or professional kitchen, and keep up with the best sharpened knives.
The Professional 3000, is one of the few rare stones that can sharpen a relatively dull knife, and double as a low-grit polishing whetstone. It's very fast cutting, and slow wearing, and just a joy to use for sharpening dully knives, or polishing a knife that has just been sharpened on a medium (sharpening) whetstone.
Cerax 1000 (soaking sharpening whetstone) : one of fastest and positive feeling whetstone I have used up to date, regardless of brand. The tactile feedback is unmatched, even for whetstones that cost a lot more. It's also slow wearing, dense, and physically larger than most sharpening whetstones available. only 15-20 of soaking time required for optimal performance.
