Re: Happy Birthday HLH !

Thank you for your greetings. Today the spring hit our hometown with 20C and the birds singing and lots of nice sun shine melting the snow. What a lovely day! 8-) 8-) 8-)

Re: Who are they?

Klaus and Henrik, I think the kakihan makes it pretty clear which Masayuki it is. According to Laz,, he called himself Hoshunsai. Born is 1801 and died 1829. He carved in both wood and stag horn. There is possibly a second who called himself Kato Masayuki, but some say it is the same carver. Judy! ...
