    Great read, the burr has been giving me problems honing. I am considering trying spine leading strokes for bevel correction and edge leading for the rest of my progression.

    If you do enough laps on your fine stone to remove the entire amount of scuzz left on the edge by the coarse stone, it shouldn't matter too much.

    Actually, it shouldn't matter that much what you do with the coarse stones as long as you don't leave damage that the next stones can't remove. I've never had any regard for what those stones are doing until I get to a finish stone, just as long as whatever evidence is left on the blade is metal and no marks that weren't created by the last stone.

    Yes, and any tiny microscopic remnants of the wire edge should be removed by stropping.
