When my planes get dull I start with 1200 grit and work up to 6000 grit to get them sharp. I use water stones.

Forgot to mention all my blades, planes or Chisels are hollow ground so I can usually put a new edge on many times with either a strop or a few passes on the 8000 stone before needing to sharpen.
