I am still working through this problem myself. I usually don't go down to 1K for touch ups, only for real sharpenings. But when I do I am reluctant to spend too much time there, which usually comes back to bite me.

Same here, 1K only appears in resetting for me, I can keep my knives going on a 6K as a strop for months before the edge breaks down enough to need a complete job, depending on the knife, of course. I strop my Goko up to 12K for laughs though, it holds it for a fair while before you notice it starting to degrade.
