    Straight. Also long strokes to avoid j hooks. In the final grits I do one direction down the full length of the blade every pass.

    Do you sharpen before or after polishing? If before, I'd be afraid of ruining the edge, if after, I'd worry about making new scratches...

    After, often I kill the edge just because I know I will lose focus during the process and I have cut myself too many times doing this. :P
