Harder aoto back up for sale $170 - sold

Sold softer one
Harder one withdrawn
$240

The 2 best aoto I've used. Super earthy smell -- perpetual just started raining smell. Exactly like that. The softer one is about 30% more earthy. Grit-wise, close to perfect.

One is finer and harder, one is softer and slightly coarser. Most consistent scratches and they comfortably self slurry immediately.

Softer, coarser one
Kaminae aoto
~4k
220mm x 70mm wide x 61mm tall
Feels like velvet, not completely smooth
Faster

Harder finer one
Okabana aoto
~6k
221mm x 68mm wide x 6.8mm tall
Feels finer than velvet, like fine powder
Slower

What makes these two good are evenness of grit, and shallow scratches, while retaining good speed, as well as strong contrast as well as highlighting of any banding, even in hard steel (which is harder to take a picture of).

Does a cool 3d effect on the cladding line Super enjoyable to use, and perfect feedback in my opinion.
