Just yesterday I sharpened the wife's Misono Swedish carbon petty. It wasn't in bad shape so I only went with a 3 stage cleanup. I started with a Nubatama #1K Gold and refined with a Gesshin #4K. I then finished up with a couple of passes on a balsa strop loaded with 1 micron diamond.

I use a 1000 King and a 6000 King stone. Then strop with hard cardboard or news paper.

King 1k followed by a stropping on a Rika 5k.
If I'm in a hurry, will use a Ume 1k followed by the Rika.
If sharpening German knives, I start and stop on a King 1.2k.
If there is a lot of damage, I'll start with a Bamboo 150 and jump to the Ume.

I was out looking for someone with experience to sharpen my chef knives and found this site/forum. So, I don't sharpen them myself (yet), I pay to have it done.

I use Crock Sticks when my kitchen knives call for more than a few swipes on the steel . I'm always surprised how infrequently they require any more attention than the steel. I would say the steel keeps mine (just) shaving sharp with only some attention on the Crock Sticks every two or three years. (crazy, I know)
My experience till this point has been with soft German steel. Now that I have my first eastern hard steel gyuto ordered and on the way it will be interesting to see if my upkeep has to change for these "Lasers"
