  1. #11
    Hi Coricopat

    Thanks for feedback, but why did you not contact me about that ??
    I will have taken it back and refunded you the money. Also for shipping
    I always do that

    I know!
    No hard feelings against you.

    I've kept it to try to figure it out, I know some stones have to be treated like women, special attention to their needs.
    As nagura it's fast and nice, the same for polish with the slurry.
    This one would make for some nice soft naguras.

    Now I've already cut of a cm of the stone, one corner "fell off".
    No one else seem to have any problems with them as I can only find people liking them.

    Well i think it was better if you just told me about it, specially it have been a year And you first say it now, here.

    I test all Aotos that go out from here. But it can be a misser. Or you just dont like that kind of stone, we all have own preferences. In any way you will have gotten your money back, and it have also been a lesson for me.

    They tell me in Japan that there i nothing left

    But said that i have heard it before, then 3 or 4 pup op. As leftovers or something. Bit like Koma Nagura

    So i hope they are wrong. But i am not sure

    All well, no flags up side down at least!

    Found my Red Aoto when cleaning out stones, can't get a grip about how to handle it, been thinking there must be a way...
    But now I saw Dave saying he use it for single edges and then his stone can't behave as mine does.
    Been taking it out and putting it back for years now, must have spent 100hrs on it now at least, steels from 50-65 hrc, carbon, stainless and every thing in between.
    Got it for bevel setting razors.
    I don't usually blame my tools but in this case I think I have to make an exception.

    Checked and compared my rock to the videos Maxim made with the Red Aoto, my rock seems to be very different.

    Edit; That alluring Koma, I tried to order but something strange was up with "the internets"!

    I know it can take a while to figure them out and since I trusted the stone to be good it could only be me, that's why it's taken so long to really figure out what's up with it.
    What's wrong with "here", it's the thread to go to when it comes to Red Aotos.
    Don't take it wrong, I'm not trying to put the stone down as a bad rock, as mine seems to be a different beast how could I even tell.
    Now I had some friend try it to, none can get it to sharpen as in your videos, all we get is red/brown slurry and lots of it if you use some pressure, not at all as when you do it, you get visible steel.

    Mine works fine, love it and I hope a #24 size one pops up so I can get it.
