 Two new sets of heaped pieces by Fugetsu. They are Ryoko and Minase above, two of the finest set ever made, just finished in March. Both set are made of first-class Mikura tsuge, a top-quality natural wood with wonderful coloring and recognizable at a glance.

Mikura Tsuge root tiger striped Heaped pieces
[By Kumazawa Ryoson, Maki-Ryoko, 3 Kings]


 Price : 760,000 JPY

 Product ID:K418

 When we order pieces from Ryoson, we are very careful about the wood, and we ask him to use the finest wood from which only a few pieces can be obtained each year. I used to think that Ryoson's popular typefaces were his original typefaces such as Kominase and Utsusemi, but the other day, a customer requested Ryoson's Maki-ryoko for a piece to be used in a title game. This typeface was very well received and the customer gave us a high praise, so we asked for the same typeface this time as well. This is a high quality piece with a slightly bold finish.
