Dear friends,

As you may or may not know, the artist who creates the Chinkin serires Maki-e pens died in late September. He unfortunately did not have an apprentice to continue his style, so Namiki will be unable to produce any more Chinkin pens. If you are interested in such pieces, now would be a good time to get one.

Brian
