The DMT fine (continuous and polka-dotted) both work well. Like any other diamond hone, they have an initial break-in pattern where they cut very quickly and finish rough and erratically and then they cut slower (but still fast) and finish finer and evenly.
If you use the continuous surface ones, use water with a li'l dab of soap or shake of baking soda in it. It helps keep the steel swarf from piling up and interfering with holding a consistent angle and also from packing down beteen the diamonds and making it seem like the diamond has 'died' when it still has a lot of years of service left.
I'm not so good with comparing the ceramics' finishes to popular waterstones.
