1) first put those stones for 10 minutes in water
2) keep the stones wet when sharpening
3) try to sharpen old utility knife blades for practise, these are made of not-so-bad steel
4) listen to >>1132392
5) keep the angle; doing a swipe at wrong angle can force you to repeat some of the sharpening
6) you should first get the blade with coarse stone to the shape.
7) then, sharpen one side until the edge curls,
8) sharpen the other side until the edge curls,
9) change side and sharpen till the edge is ok
10) take a finer stone and repeat from 7)

I got a similar set. Works fine, but sharpening is tedious…
Also, it's often not worth going beyond 800, as most blades don't keep sharp for long.
