Can I use only the Surgical black Arkansas to maintain my pocket knives or do I have to go from Hard black Arkansas -> Surgical black Arkansas. I like my knives sharp.

It would actually be best if you started with the Hard Arkansas if your knives get a good amount of use. Once they start to feel dull, you'll need something around that grit to get them sharp enough to use a finer grit like the Hard Black on. This will save you a lot of time if you want to maintain a sharp edge. If you started with the Hard Black, or the Surgical Black even, it would take you forever to get anything sharp that already starts to feel dull.
