Question for David

Bruce Mack
David - You posted on oil stones in 2010 and then recommended a soft Arkansas and a surgical black. I have both A-2 and O-1 irons and chisels. Are these still your oil stone recommendations? Is surgical grade equivalent to True Hard Arkansas, Black Arkansas, or Translucent? Does it matter? Do you recommend Dan's as the go-to vendor? Have you found other reliable sources? Sorry for the grilling. Thank you.
