Michal Slavíček, Shakuhachi Maker


Beautiful new hanko design, featuring the 5 finger holes of a shakuhachi, and the notation for a wedge breath.

A great-playing Slavíček 2.6 jinashi hochiku's natural hanko; One Leaf Left Over the Rising Moon. Photographed with my backyard background of Eastern White Pine and the hardy bamboo Phyllostachys Bissettii, both still green after another harsh Chicago Winter.
