Subject:
oil stones

Jack Guzman from Maine
I have a white oil stone I found at a flea market years ago. I just used it to polish up the edge on a spokeshave blade and it appears to be a fine stone,gritwise. I've heard about white and black arkasas stones. What is the grit equivalent to a water stone? Is white the finest?
