I use 220 then 320 then 400, (mostly because that is what I have). I use a buffing wheel to then buff the bevel side ONLY until the burr is gone. The 400 grit will give a really sharp edge without the buff. Each grit does not normaly need 100 strokes, try 30 or 40… then buff or strop, (Use the back of your belt).

-- Never board, always knotty, lots of growth rings
