    Are you sure? I would guess you go rather along -- and not across -- the grain to have grasped some debris.

    Yes soft wood works as well. I use it when the bur is being a royal pain.

    If so, you better abrade the burr. If it came off it would leave a heavily damaged edge behind.

    I believe hi tried to said that you need to use end grain part — this way you can't go along or across. It will always be perpendicular to grain.

    A week ago I sharpened lots of cheap stainless knives at my parents place. I couldn't find a cork and wasn't smart enough to use end grain cutting board, so I went with tightly rolled newspaper and deburred using the end part of it. Worked well.
