I only use them on my butcher block boards figured they are soft enough to not wreck the edge. I'm debating getting a good piece of leather to use as a strop, figure I won't ruin the edge that way but can still keep it aligned as needed.
Hardest part has been making sure my wife doesn't toss them in the dishwasher...
