I go to 8000 Waterstone and only strop/hone to touch up an edge. A xfine Arkansas stone and a little strop after will pretty well give you the same polish as a 8000 Waterstone with a lot less mess? Check out Lee Valley site under sharpening they is a lot of good info!
There is a huge difference between a sanded surface and a Planned one, especially if you do not stain your wood.
