They are sold in 4000 and 8000 I believe. I have an 8000 grit dmt diamond plate for final honing on scrapers and straight razors. I use dmt for everything. For planes and chisels I go course, like 220 grit, then 800, then 1200 and then hit it on a leather strop with green honing compound. Shaves hair everytime, and easy and fast to sharpen. I use the Paul sellers method of sharpening and I’m gladi discovered it! Quick, easy, efficient, and holds an edge!
