Sorry if this is a repeat, but I did a forum search and didnt’ come up with anything.

I went out and bought a combo sharpening stone today called ‘The Oregon Stone’ the documentation that comes with it says that it is a Extra Fine/Super Fine stone

The Super Fine is Novaculite – but other than that it doesn’t give me any information about grit equivalents.

Seems to work well, I’m curious more than anything…anyone else used these or have any insights on them?

Currently using mine with the Honing Oil they sold with the stone.

Well, most sand papers are Super Fine: 400 grit (at least in my experience) – so it’s possible that there’s your equivalent – I imagine this could differ from item to item though.

I did a quick look around for “The Oregon Stone” and found that it comes with a “Fine (220 grit)” so I would speculate that between 300-400 is where you’re looking for Super Fine.

Thanks Rasta. From everything I could find – which wasn’t much – it sounds like you are in the ball park.
