I use DMT diamond plates. XCoarse to remove minor nicks, Coarse to establish bevel, Fine, Xfine, and XXfine to refine the edge followed by a few passes on a strop.

I used oil and water stones for years until DMT made diamond plates that are affordable and effective.
No oil mess and very little involved. But the biggy is, I’ve never had to flatten a diamond plate.
