I use a coarse and fine diamond stone and finish with a Arkansas black stone. That works just fine and most of my projects involve hard white maple I never have to bear down it. They stay sharp for awhile. When I built my work benches I used cull pine lumber. They stayed sharp for both benches and pine planes like butter. You could check out some Paul sellers videos on the subject also. I need to try the stropping with jewlers rouge
