    I have seen at least 3 Aoto with a blue label, they were different both in form and value.
    Here is one of them
    I have this, I like it very much


    Another aoto picture from the web


    Oops. I i just realized that I forgot to add a photo of the label. Just to be clear. The photos that say BLUE LABEL AOTO are those of a Tanaka labeled Aoto (ie. labeled just like the first one you have listed). I will add a another photo of the label tonight. Thanks for letting me know.
    PS: I am very happy to hear that you like yours so well, mine ended up being a very expensive paperweight.

    Can Aoto by Tanaka is really different in quality
    My result on this stone is similar to that now
    Best Red Aoto Finish

    I wonder why it is so expensive, if the stone is bad?

    I would be glad to give this information to you as well as how much I paid in USD. Just read my disclaimer #1 and agree not to post that information back to this thread. I hope you understand...

    Thanks,
    Regards,
    Chris

    Thanks for that review of natural stones.I've used synthetic whetstones for kitchen knives forever.Used Med & Fine Arkansas for my Ice Chisels.

    As mentioned on this thread,most cooks could give a hoot about finishes on a blade main thing it is sharp & cuts well.But being a knife nerd & sharpening junky I just ordered a couple JNATS from Maxim.I let him choose since I have no knowledge in this area.wanted for knives & wood chisels.
