    The difference is the coarseness of the grits and depending on the blade type and how dull or blunt the edge is will decide on which stone you should use. As an example, 1000/6000 is a great 'all-rounder', the 3000/8000 is perfect for achieving the sharpest edge possible whilst the 400/1000 is for a dull edge that needs to be really brought back to life ready for either 1000/6000 or the 3000/8000

  • They are Whetstones meaning they require using water only, using oil will clog the grits and lose effectiveness Keep in mind this is not an oil stone but a wet stone using water as a lubricant while sharpening knives.

The little white stone serves two purposes, one being to create a slurry to whetstone and the second function is to level whetstone to create a smooth level surface for sharpening. The slurry firms to sharpen and polish the blade such that it will become razor sharp. 

The courser grit should be used initially to shape the edge then finer grit used as the final to polish a razor sharp edge.
