A mixed grit 'muddy' stone graded at 2000 grit that can be made to cut finer similar to a natural aoto stone. The Jinzou or 'man-made' aoto stone starts cutting at 2,000 grit with a good soak and moderate pressure and easily removes scratches from anything 800 grit and up. A great toothy polish for western and Japanese butchery knives; our choice for deba micobevels (do the ura finer).

If the slurry is left on the stone and forms a thicker mud the stone starts to leave a finer finish. This thicker mud when left atop the stone provides a much finer finish and starts a sub mirror polish, somewhere around 4,000 grit. A shop favorite for single bevel knives, aoto stone is extremely useful in preparing and polishing wide bevels by doing both jobs of 2,000 and 4,000 stones. The left over mud generated when mopped up onto a cloth makes a great rust remover.
