    A very nice review. You have a very nice range of medium sharpeners there, Max. These stones are the most important tools for a perfect result.

    I have tried out several Iyoto and they perform very differently. Good Iyo is equally hard to find as good Aoto these days. Personally I prefer the softer Iyo stones to the harder, but my Iyoto is quite similar to yours in sharpning qualities. Fairly hard, fairly agressive and a very good medium sharpener. And I believe the wooden pattern on some of these stones is just beautiful.
    Here are a couple of pictures of my Iyo...

    I believe the above Iyo is in the #1500-2000 range. Lv4

    No, sorry Max. I got a large soft stone from 330mate but it was just a "paper weight" stone, so I threw it out to make space for other stones.
    I have found no connection between colour and hardness, or grit however.

    I'm not finished with my spectroscopic analysis. I'll report my findings in the morning.
