      I recommend instead of trying to find a faster way to sharpen them, you sharpen them more often.

      Every couple of minutes, just a couple licks with green compound on a hone and it can be restored to fresh condition.

      If you try to use it after it has dulled some, the extra force you need to apply will damage the edge faster and faster, resulting in it taking much longer to sharpen.

      Your actual 1/2 hour per knife sharpening sessions that start with course grit stones and work back up to 2000+ grit should be reserved for restoring the bevel after hundreds of 'just 5 strokes and back to work' sharpening have rounded it over.
