Quick update:

Sharpening Supplies has posted on their website the following:

0.5 micron = 30,000 grit (just like Shapton)
0.25 micron = 60,000 grit
0.1 micron = 160,000 grit
0.025 micron = 600,000 grit

There seems to be some confusion according to the results I’ve read on Google regarding micron size and grit size but nonetheless, there appears to be a sharpening abrasive out there capable of polishing your bevel at an equivalent of 600,000 grit! It must be like hand planing with a laser beam!
