Re: Van Ham - The handling session

Every time I see this thread it gives me a huge smile.. :) There is something else remarkable in Gabor's judgement, which is obviously overlooked here.

Re: pipe case addition

No reply on my last post means, I have to do it myself We discussed Zeshin and his offsprings. I think it is worth to move to Ikeda Taishin, who worked with Zeshin in the same workshop under the same roof. This pipecase has the design of Yam Leaves.
