If you stop at a 1K edge and then strop you won't ever have to worry about polishing out the teeth since the jump is so big the strop won't be able to abrade enough steel to get rid of the toothy edge you have.
Try just the boron carbide on a piece of balsa. That will refine the edge well. That's what I use all the time.
If you want a second strop you could get our horse butt strop and not put anything on it. That would be a good one for quick touch ups at work since there is no mess. Just leave it in the zip lock bag so when not in use so it doesn't get dirty or wet.
+1 - end of story!!
