You've all heard and seen the two-piece modern shakuhachi. This one came in last week for refurbishing and bore adjustment.
The joints were a bit loose so I am applying Urushi Lacquer to make them snug.
It's made by Kinshu and had four hankos stamps. Three by Kinshu and another by a repair person.
It came apart in five pieces! The Ro was a little unstable but after the first coat on all the joints, it's already showing it's potential. I can 't wait until it's snug. Sounds like it's going to reveal a special voice.
