for the past 16+ years i have been using paper wheels to remove the burr with. i get results like this consistently http://www.myculpeper.com/richardj/MLNA0018.AVI http://www.myculpeper.com/richardj/MLNA0001a.AVI
the paper wheel removes the burr and polishes the edge. before a friend showed me the wheels i used to use an ez sharp and ceramic stick. i gave the ez sharp to my cousin once i learned how to use the wheels. i have seen many gadgets but nothing has impressed me enough to switch, not even diamond stones.
i sharpen to my finest grit, then either buff the edge with the cheap equivelent of a hard felt wheel loaded with compound (several cardboard discs on my bench grinder loaded with gray tripoli)...or i just use a strop with several passes. both take the burr off. sometimes after i buff on the wheel i take it to a loaded strop to make sure i got it all.
