Just got a little beauty this morning. Natural aono(?) Maybe Ken can help me remember. Works super nice after my bester 1200 stone. Gets super muddy, the wife is going to hate it :) Can't wait to use this edge on some fish tomorrow.

Brought my small deba from this stone, to my covenant stone. Getting a little hazy on the finish but still plenty of noticible scratches. I'll have to spend some more time trying to get them out.

Yes it is an Aono Aoto. These are muddy stones and produce a superb mid grit finish. A toothy edge perfect for a wide range of kitchen cutting tasks or a bridge to a finer grit stone.

Thanks for the post. Glad you are enjoying your stone!

Can I use your muddy knife shot on our facebook page? I like it. I pretty much just post photos there.

I need to learn how to 'work the mud' now to get exactly what I'm looking for on each knife :) Ken or Mark do you have any videos on that?

"and get one of those Aoto stones...preferable a large one :) "

How's 14"x 3" x 3" sound? :)

GIANT Aono Aoto, approximately 14 x 3 x 3" in size. Haven't posted this before as I'm not too sure I want to sell it The stone sitting on top of it is 1x6x 1/4" in size for comparison purposes. No stone holder required It's not moving anywhere :)

Ken you have gotten me addicted. Now I feel compelled to find a lower grit and another finishing stone above my covenant stone.

Question though, would the 140 grit diamond stone included in this bundle (http://www.chefknivestogo.com/xxcdiplandun.html) be too aggressive to use for lapping this aono and my finishing stone?
