    Nah. You'll do just fine with that. I still recommend stropping at a low angle after your 1000 grit.

    I don't use the Lansky, but based on what I read, they are oil stones. Generally speaking, there are two types of stones: water stones and oil stones. I'd recommend using oil on the lansky stones. You just need enough to lubricate the sharpening process. Excess oil will be a waste.

    You really don't need other stones to get started. Some tips on the sharpmaker that I posted in another thread:


    My advice is to watch the old video where Sal shows how to use the Sharpmaker:




    Yeah the video is old and kind of corny but if you watch it and use the Sharpmaker like Sal demonstrates you will have good results. My advice is not to try to reinvent Sal’s techniques.
    A few tips:


    Do most of your sharpening with the corners of the gray stones – if the edge is not sharp coming of the gray stones it will take forever to get it sharp on the white stones (the white stones are for refining an already sharp edge).

    - Do Not sharpen the last ¼” of so of a plain edge on the corner of the stones – use the flats only for this or you may round off your point. For serrated edges keep the corner of the stone in the last couple of serrations near the tip so that the tip doesn’t get pulled past the edge of the stone.


    - Stand above the sharpmaker when sharpening. This helps keep the blade straight up and down so your edge angle is consistent.

    - For serrated edges (use the corner of the white stones), I prefer to use the second white stone free hand to remove the burr by laying it completely flat on the side that does not have the ground edge once every 5 to 10 strokes to remove the burr, like Sal shows for deburring scissors.


    - To remove burrs from plain edges you can strope (plain, unloaded strope) or use the stones at an angle slightly steeper than your edge angle with very light pressure. You can also strope serrated edges on the unground side, again by laying it completely flat on the strope.

    Glad the Sharpmaker is working for you.

    Another tip - keep the stones clean, they work much better when they're clean.
