None of them. For touching up, make a few edge trailing strokes on your finest stone, or, if necessary, the one before. A diamond rod will eat your edge, a fine ceramic one fatigues steel. Rods are meant to realign the edge of soft steel. Realignment is hardly necessary with hard Japanese steel.

Forget it mrbushido. Benuser is right. I can add that a leather strop is also good for deburring (and polishing at the same time).

You can strop on cardboard to touch up your edge and newspaper to polish.  Cardboard has a clay content that makes for a great strop.
