I use scary sharp for the heavy removal, taking out nicks, and primary bevel establishment (up to 220 grit). After that I move to waterstones. 4k then 8k. For touch-up I go right to waterstones. I currently use a honing guide, but practice a lot without one.

I agree with the methodology that the exact angle is not quite as important as your ability to repeat the angle that is on your tool That all comes with practice and muscle memory.
