I hope that is not my natural Aoto, Ken :P
Anyway looks quite good to me, though it looks as though it might need to get flattened a bit. Hard to see from pictures...
Also what is that, black substance that looks like tarsoked papertowle around 2? sides of the stone or is this the natural look of the stone?

Guess all you have left is testing it to see if it preforms without any hitches.

To my eyes, it looks like resin impregnated paper towel. We'll see if I'm right :-).

Actually it is lacquer and a tissue material I get from Japan. Multiple layers of lacquer. It is time consuming and you do need to deal with noxious vapors. The lacquer over the labels is clear so it shows the labels through the lacquer and the other three sides have additional black lacquer coatings.

I will probably keep this stone for my own use. The knife after flattening glides nicely over the crack. Actually as Aoto goes, I really like the stone :) Glad I put it back together.

Shinookami, you are getting a whole stone, not a rebuild :)

I don't think anyone would like a tar coated stone :) Might ruin the stone since it would be oily.

Actually you can see the saw marks through the lacquer, which is a sign of a stone's authenticity.

Had a chance to use it to sharpen a few knives. It really is a nice aoto and the blade easily goes over the crack line for both edge leading and trailing strokes effortlessly.

A bit off topic, but I'm convinced for most average Euro type knives that an aoto edge is a far superior alternative to a synthetic 2-5k edge.
