Polishing Edges

Do you need to use a diamond stone to polish and keep your edges sharp? Or can you just use Aluminum-Oxide Stones,i.e. Arkansas Stones?

I'm talking edge maintenance hear not initial edge set-up

i believe the diamond stone is for smoothing out nicks and gouges in ur edges and then a gummi stone for final polishing. i dont think that the Al-oxide pads u talking about will do a good job on a steel edge

I just take a gummi stone to it every now and then in between sharpenings and it works fine
