Have one in the shop now.


Hanko of Chiukuin. Early 20th C. Beautiful flutes too.

You have 4 hours to bid on it! I don't like the seller, but ...

The one I have here is certainly worth more than the present top bid of $510.

Do you know more about the one that's in your shop? Yamazaki Chikuin is a great maker, but John says he doesn't think that's his hanko.

I've handled two of these fine instruments. I'm pretty sure it's Chikuin.

The flute has arrived in Tasmania.

But that doesn't matter because I am in Melbourne. I'll play it in a few days.

I asked my wife to open it and give her impression. She was irritated. The only thing I could get out of her was that it is "thick".

"thick" is good! Okay Cap size 9 good! Polished root-end no little roots catch in scarf or put hole in bag, good too!

Friends you best study good with yours teachers because you see it is the Shihans who gets all the good stuffs on bay auctions!

Cheers!
thick old flute player

EDIT: sorry folks for silliness - you see I'm stuck at home with bad heel, having to hop 1 leg or use crutch - resulting in appartmental condition.
Lot's of time to practice Taisho/early Showa thick 1.8 though!

Ciao,
K

My top student saw it today. He told my wife it is "good". I will find out tomorrow how good. Twisted Evil

OK Guys, the verdict is in!

It's a very nice big bore, big hole, semi jinashi 1.8 pitched around A=443. Aside from a few chips in the utaguchi and some gunk in the joint seems to be in original condition. Three hanko.

From what I can remember of my previous Yamazaki Chikuin 1.8 (in Perry's picture) it has the same colour of urushi (rust) and the same flat tsu. Perry maybe you can verify those qualities? I haven't seen that flute in years. It definitely has the same unstable ro that flute features.

So the holy grail has been achieved, getting a killer 1.8 on eBay for peanuts. Thanks to X and Perry guys I owe you a Bombay Sapphire martini in these dimensions in the future:
