Another method is to refine the edge to your finest stone, then strop a few times on a lower grit stone.
You can also get a toothy edge on a very refined edge by using things like diamond sprays on felt. The sharp diamond particles leave scratches in the edge.
It's all a matter of how "toothy" you want your edge.
Personally, I've come to really like my diamond stropped, Naniwa Superstone 10k edge. Highly refined, yet still toothy to a slight degree.
