Rob Cosman did a video where he compared 1000 and 16000 grit for finishing plane blades. Might be worth a watch. I sharpen to 12000 and if I’m doing my job correctly with the plane (still not guaranteed – I’m a noob) I can finish from that point without sandpaper. Also, if there are fine marks left after planing, rubbing the work down with a handful of shavings can take off fine marks. No sandpaper needed.
