I don’t question the process other than it seems TOO much work for ya.
I flatten as you do. Not as accute, but flat. Not to a mirror ‘cause I’m afraid that I might see myself.
Basic 25 degree bevel +-, then a micro bevel which I believe to be the most important. Hone with green rouge or even alum. oxide if I want to get nutso.
I flatten my w’stones after each use. Had ‘em for over 15 years, keep ‘em wet (with a touch of bleach in the water) so they are ready for use.
I won’t fault your process at all.
I welcome any comments too.
I use a Makita horizontal waterstone sharpener. It is a dino, but so what…....
