  • According to Dan's website the soft Arkansas stone is a medium with a related grit of 600-800. Specific Gravity 2.25-2.30. Dan's Arkansas Stones are from Course 400-600 Medium 600-800 Fine 800-1000 and ultra fine ( True Hard, Translucent, and Black ) 1200+ For most general sharpening needs for knives etc a Medium stone followed by a Fine or Ultra fine will do the job.
