I was touching up various knives (in AEB-L, AS and White#2, mainly) with my Jinzo Renge Suita (synthetic Lotus Suita) #6000-grit, which is plenty fast enough to raise a burr even only after a few strokes...
... and I wasn't in the mood to break out the felt or the newspaper so I decided to try this out:
use the blue (gentle) side of a scourer/scrubbie with stropping strokes (spine to edge in downward motion). Got the idea from the thread about the Takeda handheld stone.
Works real good for me!
