There are as many different sharpening preferences as woodworkers; most important is finding something that is quick and convenient for you. I use 3 DMT diasharp diamond stones and then a 4000 and 8000 grit waterstone. Quick, repeatable, and no flattening of the diamond stones…I’ve also used the “scary sharp” method which is great but uses a lot of sandpaper, and a Tormek wet grinder which also is great but takes too long to set up for me to use it regularly. All three methods give me razor sharp edges but I go with what is quick and convenient.
