'Grit' is also variable, and a stone of the same 'grit' compared to another identical grit stone won't always yield the same results. Heck, some stones if identical numerical 'grit' don't have the same sized 'grit' in them.
Case in point, I have several #1000 stones, and no two work the same. Ranging from a ragged edge to smooth, bushed finish to soft polish to wet-chrome polish. They're all #1000 stones, but what they give you edge wise is very different.
The stone you have should be more than up to the job of sharpening almost anything perfectly adequately for anything you're likely to attempt for now.
(Or in other words, what you got isn't broken, so don't fix it!)
(My newest 1K stone scares me...)
Mmmm...this thread has me thinking about Shrimp and Grits from New Orleans.
Amen to that Pete - Would love some bbq shrimp n cheese grits right now.
