Highland hardware sells a 200-grit green coarse stone #026420 that might do the trick for you. Never used one myself (use a diamond equivalent) but my favorite guru Ian Kirby (Sharpening with Waterstones, 1998) thinks a 100/200 grit waterstone combination is just the ticket for initially flattening the backs of chisels and plane irons. So you're in good company with that idea. Woodcraft might have what you want. Dave
