How much of the back are you trying to flatten? If you do only the last 1/2 inch or so, which is all that is necessary, there is not enough surface area to create a leve.

Additionally, try using less water. Many of the higher grit stones only require a spritzing immediately before use and too much water can be a hinderance rather than a help.
