    After googling, it turns out that it is Lansky's "Medium" grit. Which is 280 US Grit, about 350 on our Japanese stones. That's pretty freaking agressive. I'd go with something finer. There is a Smith's ceramic that is 800 US grit(about 1200 Japanese) for a similar price:

    I'd go with the smith's one. Some places are selling that one for about 5 bucks more than Amazon.

    Lol, I was actually just posting that one. I have their diamond version of this same model for use on my German knives. I really like the oval shape, I find it easy to hone on and you get more effective passes with more surface area in contact.

    I think it's worth the $2 over the Lansky previously posted.

    I was just looking at that one too. Thanks for that!
