I hear what you are sayingThis was Years ago. But I bought a SR, honing stone, leather strop, spent a ton of money on it. Finally decided SR is not my schtick. Sold it all.
There was a time when I was like "OH WOW", this is so cool and all, but then I realized - damn, I can't put a decent edge on a kitchen knife, there's no way I'm gonna make this work. I'd probably damage that super-delicate SR edge by merely looking at it, let alone strop and hone and whatnot... so (THANKFULLY!) I never took the plunge.
I still sometimes daydream about it and maybe... who knows... when I retire... I might give it a shot... but then I wake up, glance at my Timeless and Vector and go like "no way".
