4000 is fine to get started with. 4000 hones shaving sharp.
Your constraint will be your skill at honing more than the
stone’s grade. Anything 4000 and above is an excellent
finishing stone.

I recommend getting a naugura stone to remove glazing and
speed up your honing. Without one, the polishing stones
clog up pretty quick.

Do not use mineral oil on the stones.
