I have three DMT stones that I have been using for the past year. Coarse (when needed), Fine, XFine then finish up with a quick pass on a buffer. Works well enough for me.
I’ve used water stones and scary sharp in the past. Both gave great results. However, the diamond stones work every bit as well without the downsides of constant flattening or buying/gluing sandpaper. I have 6×2” stones which are easily large enough for my chisel and block plane blades. My larger plane blades still get sharpened via scary sharp since I don’t use/sharpen those often enough to justify buying larger diamond stones.
I’d use oil stones before I’d ever go back to water stones. Unfortunately, good oil stones are pretty expensive. I think I paid $25ish for each of my diamond stones.
