You can do a great job with a coarse dia-sharp (not dia-flat, dia-sharp) ($50) and an 800/4000 or 1000/6000 waterstone (another $50). You might not get the mirror polish you would with a 10000 or 15000 grit stone, but it will be as sharp as you’ll ever need for cutting wood.

As a bonus, you can use the dia-sharp to flatten the waterstone.
