After establishing the angle I use an Atoma 1200 diamond plate, 8000 water stone, and

a leather strop rubber cemented on the back of a DMT stone.

A light touch yields better results vs. bearing down on the plates and water stones.

BTW a Nagura stone is recommended for water stones 6K and higher. This produces a slurry and also
cleans the stone. YMMV. (Your mileage may vary). Some recommend different Nagura stones for different
Waterstones. Occam’s razor comes to mind.

Here’s a stropping set up for a chisel that took a while to get sharp by only stropping.
Inside was done with a dowel and leather strop.
