Naka-To - 中砥

Naka-To stones are mid-range hones. While an Arato may have mid-range capabilities, these Naka-to stones are, generally, not capable of handling heavy repair work, significant chip removal or other tasks that are normally relegated to coarser and aggressive stones.

As dedicated middle-grit hones, they excel at refining the early work and preparing the bevel and edge for the final finish.
