Yes, this one def looks like it's on the green side rather than red, which should mean it's harder - which I'd probably prefer. Very useful stone, I think you'll find.

it's indeed a really nice stone, very easy to work out the mud, and gives much better finish than synthetic stones. I am in fact getting rid of my shapton gs now

Hi J-stoners - thought I'd add something here. These are my most recent additions: greenish akapin atagoyama ('green aoto') from JNS on the right and newly arrived hakka from Japan on the left. The hakka looks quite cool - not sure if you'd call that 'kan' or what? - but I haven't had a chance to try it yet. The green aoto is very handy; interestingly, it gave a far better edge to my stainless petty than all of my other stones, and of course it's great with the carbons too.
