BTW over 2k I still sharpen normally, but I apply more pressure on the edge trailing, almost none the other way. Just use lighter pressure as you go up. The burr is harder to feel too because it's going to be a smaller burr on those stones. You have to use other senses than your fingers possibly. Visual inspection, listening. Flip more often and use less pressure on any stone and you can start deburring.
Black ink is terrific stuff. Gives both polish and a great bite. But it doesn't last all that long.
