I agree with Rich. The strop is for quick “refreshes” on the bench for me. I use it on freshly sharpened edges as well but I generally only sharpen to about 1500 grit. 6000 on paring chisels or carving tools. If your stone is finer than the strop or the compound on the strop, then no, I can’t see any logic in using it personally.
