Yep, 4000 grit might be enough for a jack or scrub, but something finer is needed for a really good finish. I finish with a 6000 waterstone, then a strop. IIRC, a 6000 stone and 1500 wet/dry sandpaper are generally both about 2 microns and an 8000 stone and 2000 wet/dry are about 1.5.

Take that with a grain of salt, as the numbering is not necessarily consistent among manufacturers or rating scales, but it should get you close.
