I’ve been using sandpaper for sharpening for many years, with outstanding results.
Get yourself a good honing guide…I use the older Lee Valley guide.
6 grits of sandpaper on a piece of flat 1/4” glass.
80/120/220 psa backed on one side
600/1000/1500 wet/dry on the other

Here’s a link to an old discussion on LJ
