    want to borrow: green aoto or similar

    my current finisher is a blue aoto that is around 5k grit. i would like a lower finish. have an ikarashi but is too low for gyutos so target would be 3k.
    if anyone has a green aoto they could loan me would be much appreciated.

    thoughts on green aoto:
    nice smooth feedback, pretty dense stone, holds water well. leaves a very toothy 'sticky' edge, i would guess its grit to be just over 2k.

    Are you referring to a green brick here or some other stone?

    no, the naniwa green brick is synthetic and feels horrible (but leaves a pretty good edge for stainless knives)
    the stone i'm referring to is a natural one.

    Sounds like what you need. No?
