    Foody, Ikarashi can have a bit of a range. Some start at about 1-2k, rising to 3K+ with mud refinement while the harder, finer variety (often but not always vintage stones) can start at 2-3K and rise from there with mud refinement. Not sure about this specific one, I feel like he told me at one point, but I can't remember for the life of me. Anyway, I'm sure he'll tell you when the sun rises over in Auckland.

    Thanks tgfencer. I've got a Thai White Binsui that strikes me as getting to 1.5-2k grit refinement that is somehow really crisp, didn't want to get a stone that is barely finer than that range. But missing out on the recent Aizus is making me sad.

    That's fair. I dont have binsui so I cannot comment on how similar they might be. Don't know if these will be helpful to you, but check these out if you haven't already.

    The yaginoshima and ohira renge uchimugori might just be the picks of the bunch. By far and away the prettiest uchimugori I've ever seen and at 2.5 sounds buttery soft to boot.

    I think there'd be too much overlap with the white Binsui to offer the Ikarashi to you in good conscience. Let me have a little think on something and I'll get back to you.

    Out of curiosity: what is the Nakayama aka pin like compared to `aka pin Aotos´@ maksims or true aotos? I would have really loved to play with that one

    Hi Kim, Thanks!

    I have not tried any of those red atagoyama "aotos" but from what I read these are much finer. Certainly finer than real Aoto. These finish like Hakka , perhaps even a little finer than that.
