Description: The Aoto Natural Mountain Blue Stone removes scratches left by coarser stones and is the professionals' secret for obtaining a superior edge. It makes possible a sharper, longer lasting edge when used prior to any of our finish or polish stones, and we recommend using it prior to all #6000 -#8000 grit stones to achieve the best edge attainable. Quite often, an edge which is beginning to dull can be touched-up on the Aoto, thus saving time and effort. Size is approximate. A Nagura Stone should be used in combination with this stone for proper polishing of the edge.
Aoto stones have become extremely hard to find -- both in Japan and in the US. Our 'Standard Grade' Aoto stones will have some inclusions, as is typical with natural waterstones.
