I realize that the OP has probably gotten his sharpening set-up by now, but I just wanted to contribute to this informative thread.
I've been successfully using the Norton Waterstones up to 8000 with a Nagura Stone, and finishing with a leather strop and Green Chromium Oxide. Last year, I picked up a Veritas honing jig which I find terrific! I flatten my stones with 220 grit wet/dry sandpaper on a piece of glass.
 When these stones need replacing, which is probably within this year, I'm thinking of getting this DMT set...
