    Any higher grit is IMHO counterproductive.
    bdl on another forum as we know likes to finish up to fine and even translucent arky's on his softer steel knives.... he attests to a longer lasting edge with the use of these stones. i just wanted an opinion from another arky user. coz i was thinking of getting arky's just for softer stainelss knives....

    thanks.

    A little off topic, but high grit stones are completely ineffective on soft stainless knives. They gut gummied up quickly. In fact, only low grit stones (800-1200) should be used if you want to get that thing sharp.
