I do a set of 30 halfstrokes, then 10 x strokes. I use a dry thumbpad to check the bevel. If it catches and stops my thumb I will do an arm hair test. If it passes I will start dilutions. If not I keep doing sets of 30 till it does.after I have done about 7 dilutions I will check and see if the edge will either catch and tear, split or violin a medium thickness hair. If it does I do 2-3 more sets and then go to finishing. If not keep going till it does, probing the edge with the hair. It has worked well for me so far.

Just because it's sharp, does not mean it's smooth.
