Lee Valley have these metal lapping plates that you use with diamond paste and they never have to be re flattened. Something to look into anyways.

I’ve used mineral oil with no ill effects, but your mileage may vary.

Stropping keeps a keen edge as you work. I charge my homemade stropping pad with green honing compound and some mineral oil. Nothing like a sharp edge.
