I'm a big fan of the sharpmaker and a big fan of not damaging my knives. What I have typically been doing is when I notice that my knives are not cutting as efficiently as I like, I take them to the fine and then ultra stones on the sharpmaker until I have a perfect apex and no bur. I have always figured that I don't need to strop since I get a perfect burr-free edge on stones, but now I'm reconsidering and opening my mind. Should I be stropping in between sharpenings to extend the amount of times a month I'm removing metal? If so, what is the best strop for S30V and the likes that is noob-friendly. My knives are blemish free and I'd hate to ruin that because of a poor strop. I will definitely practice stropping cheaper knives first. So, should I get into stropping and if so, what should I buy so that I start off on the right foot?
