I would never claim to be smarter than you when it comes to sharpening knives. I could only hope to know as much as you someday when it comes to sharpening, but you are right. I started that process the first time I had more than one knife to sharpen.
I did take some knives to different finises but I didn't change stones until every knife I wanted to put on that stone was finished.
