So I'll occasionally strop my knives on a dry rika or gesshin 8k to bring back an edge and it seems to give me good results but i'm wondering if this is bad for the stone or my edge or if anyone else does this?

The worst that could happen to the stone is that it loads up with metal shavings and you'd have to lap it to get a fresh surface. It won't hurt the knife.

I do this all the time on my Rika 5K. I don't see why this would be bad for the stone or the knife. As long as the stone is dry, you shouldn't get any rust from the residual metal from stropping.

I strop on a dry stone before every shift. Great results without removing too much metal. I wouldn't think it is any different than honing a knife on a ceramic rod.

You get more glazing and metal swarf buildup on a dry stone. Not recommended. You can lap this off if you need to.

I strop my carbons on a dry Snow White all the time, use a dry Pro 2k on my soft steel knives. No problems here.
