the abow is correct in the way its all come up to yourself of what you are confident with
one thing you shuold avoid at all cost is just using one part of the stone .. like one end or
if you sharpening chiesels in the mitle
try to use the stone all over at the same time to ceep it flat as long as possiple

one thing you shuold do is rinse the tool between each grit to avoid contamination

if you have used a lower grit stone or sandpaper to flaten a stone with then rinse and clean the stone

when I sharpen tools and here I talk about staring them up again under a restoring process
I flaten the stones between each tool ….. that have been the best for me so far
I still havn´t used them very much so I don´t know how it will be when they just need
to be honed …. my gess will be for every 3-4 tuch up

what I like about my Japanese waterstones is they give a mirorpolish back and bevel
but not all waterstones do that

have fun and remeber to dry and oil after the watersplashes …. lol
