Topic tags/keywords: question sharpening

I have been using scary sharpening and it worked very well for me but now I am almost a the end of my stock of sanding paper and I would like to switch to diamond sharpening stones as sand paper gets expensive after a while.
A while ago it was pretty bad review about diamond stones.
What is your experience with them and which brand and grit do you recommend?
What about “Shapton water/glass stones”?
Do you have any experience with them.
Do you have to flatten them as a normal water stone or do they stay flat as a diamond stone?
I have water stones, I do not like then as they are too much work to maintain.
Thank you.
