The Soft Arkansas side will bring your edge to basic sharpness and polish. The Hard Black Arkansas side will finish your edge to a smooth, ultra sharp to-the-touch finish.
Soft Arkansas: (medium density) 400-600 Grit
Considered the coarsest of the Arkansas sharpening stones. This stone will provide the initial edge and first level of polishing, but is primarily used for sharpening.
Black Arkansas: (extra fine density) 2000-3000 Grit
Harder and finer than Hard Arkansas. Not as pure black as Surgical Black Arkansas. Coloration is more dark grey than black. This stone will polish finer than Soft and Hard Arkansas stones.
