To me the stones also feel very similar (smoothness, hardness).

I agree... they seem more similar than different. I guess you could do a comparison picture of what type of finish they leave on a knife... although the fact that the stones' finish can be altered by lapping, this probably isn't necessary... or wouldn't really tell that much anyway.

Nice pics!!

I have experimented a bit more with these stones and I took some additional microscope pictures. I think these stones are a bit coarser than I initially thought. See my blog update.

I agree with your updated blog... Micro Fine coarse --> 1200 --> 1600 --> Micro Fine fine. Alternatively, I've skipped the 1200 & 1600, and just used the Micro Fine stones, then onto the leather if I wanted. Seems to be about as effective to me, maybe not quite as polished, but I'm not as concerned about that as I used to be.
