Something precise.

David Weaver
I think if you want to do this without buffing the corners off of a chisel, you'd rather have something like a deburring wheel and some fixture to concentrate the work in a certain spot, with the awareness that a deburring wheel will create heat.

Another option is a radius wheel with a sanding belt on it.

If you concentrate finger pressure at the very edge only with your finish stone, you'll remove all of the wear you're seeing and the problem will cease. no rolling the edge up or anything will be needed - just continue to sharpen using pressure at the edge from above.

Japanese chisels would be a pain without the ura because their hardness is well above anything silica based (the bulk of what's in a japanese natural stone, aside from 15-20% alumina), and on top of that, the hardness slows down the speed of the alumina a lot.

The key to getting something initially flat is using something fast enough to remove material so that you're not encouraged to bias pressure toward the edge in earlier steps. If edge refinement isn't perfect because of a few deeper scratches, they will eventually leave in subsequent resharpenings.
