Personally, I would go for the waterstones. But I will preface that with the fact that I’ve been using diamond stones and finishing on a waterstone for almost a year now. I sharpen free hand, but the MKII is a very good honing guide.

As for the setup time of a honing guide, you could always make something like this once you have it set to the right angle, if you don’t want to buy the “registration jig” for the MKII
