    I have 5 dia-sharp stones ranging from extra course to extra extra fine. they have no grit designation. Are these sufficent for sharpening plane irons using your method? Also which ones should I start with? another question: why the second micro bevel? why not just hone the first micro to the finest grit? Just wondering.

    Answered my own question about diamond stone grit # I contacted DMT. extra course=220,coarce =325,fine=600,extra fine=1200, extra extra fine =8000. Guess I also need a shapton 16000. My Fine India FB8 oil stone by Norton seems to give a little finer polish than the extra extra fine DMT .
