I only use a waterstone for final hone/polish, so I typically spray my waterstone (king) with a spray bottle so that the top is fully covered (sometimes spreading the water around as needed). Then I will do my other sharpening/back flattening on the more coarse stones (I use DMT’s) and keep an eye out for any dry spots on the waterstone, and re-spray as needed. By the time I get to the waterstone it’s generally ready to go with out having to submerge the whole thing. I only use the top, after all…
