Source for 800-grit sandpaper

I've used scary-sharp method for years. I put half-sheets of wet-dry
Si02 paper on 1/2" plate glass.
BUT, I can't find 800-grit paper (ANSI system, NOT FEMA; i.e. no "P"
in front of the grit number). So I got a gap between 600- and
1000-grit.
Anybody have a source of 800-grit ANSI Si02 wet-dry sandpaper?

Try Autozone, PepBoys, O'Reily's or similar auto parts store. Most of them have a wide selection/range of very fine grit, to at least 2000P.

Or any automotive paint store.

Some Aces have had it. They used to have crocus cloth as well, so what they stock changes. And that would be silicon carbide wet or dry, not SIO2. Even Home Despot has carried finer stuff in wet-or- dry, might worth a look.
If you need bulk, have a look at Amazon.
Me, I use diamond hone plates for sharpening stuff.

I love diamond hones. I have a cone from Griz, a 6" EZElap 600, a 6" DMT 600, and a set of 2" paddles in 320, 600, and 1200 grit. They handle a diverse set of sharpening problems.

I always send our "scary sharp" customers to Klingspor abrasives...

600 grit to 1000 grit is not too big of a step. I've never seen 800 grit.
