This is where most honing starts. If your blade pulls but still cuts, this range is about as rough as you should need to go. It grinds steel well, but is far less aggressive than a rougher stone such as 1,000. As a result, the stone does the job without grinding excess steel and shortening the life of your blade.
Knifewear stones are hard, so they last a long time and work quickly.
Always flatten your stone with a truing stone after honing.
