I use a combination of diamond and water. Diamond for coarse, water for fine.

IME even the most fine diamond stone will not hone like 8000 or greater water stone.

Diamonds plates are (supposed) to be dead flat, so I prefer them for flattening and re-establishing an edge.

I use a 300 grit diamond plate to keep my waterstones flat.

If you want to try a diamond plate very economically try one of these. The look identical to a Trend. I purchased one and have used it a little. My over all impression is the grit is a little coarser than they indicate but it is a very useable stone.
