While the pedigree on this hand-sawn stone isn't completely know, it behaves nearly identically to examples of antique Aoto I have tried. This stone finishes closer to 5k. It is very easy to use and you can build up an impressive amount of mud using high pressure. With good water management you can leave a very consistent finish with lots of contrast and barely visible scratches. This can be left as is for a nice working finish or taken to a suita for further refinement.
