Managing it..

Managing it is a good way to put it.

When I was a beginner, it seemed like fiddling, because I was fighting sharpening technique at the same time.

Now, managing the stone rewards you in a better stone (one that isn't lapped and brash) and time saved sharpening by the fact that you're never fiddling with the surface of the stone with lapping materials, etc.

Just sharpen, and that's it. Management of the stone is part of sharpening and doesn't add any time.

Recently on here, this kind of stuff was described as being quaint. There's nothing quaint about it, it's being sensible.
