For sharpening, Como, consider a Kings carving set (listed as two stones, but is actually 4 stones) of Japanese water stones. 1000 grit and 4000 grit. The set includes a slip stone and larger (4.5 by 2.5) stone of each grit and sells for less than $40 for all four stones at Woodcraft and many other suppliers.

The larger stone in each of the two grits has profiles on one side for carver chisels, but that side can be flattened using wet ‘n dry paper in just a few minutes.
