I use diamond plate for sharpening then switch to waterstones for honing. Of course when I bought my waterstones, I don’t know if diamond plates were available in grits above 1200 (at least I couldn’t find any back then). Even now though, DMT’s extra fine diamond plate are a 1200 grit and then they jump to an 8000 grit for the extra extra fine grit which seems like a larger jump than I would like to do in one shot.

If I were starting out today, I honestly would probably buy ceramic stones rather than either for final honing.
