I use to do stone, sandpaper, film and leather but after numerous cut fingers and more knowledge my system NOW consists of.
2 sided stone in holder..

then finish up on leather with black compound THEN green compound.

If I have a real bad nicked or out of square blade or chisel I will start with 80grit sandpaper on glass until very close then switch to the stone.

If I want a really really really sharp and shiney blade like on my smooter then after the stone I move to lapping films and do about 10 passes on 3 differnt grits which will give me one heck of a sharp blade.

these are cut in 3inch widths and are put on glass. They have a sticky back.

Got a new blade yesterday, took 10minutes to make a 5degree bevel, polish and test in plane.
