I have just been informed that Hakuhodo the Japanese brush manufacturer has announced a price increase effective January 1, 2012. As you all know I have purchased several Hakuhodo brushes. Check out my post: Hakuhodo.
I have made several more purchases since then and have been more than pleased with every purchase. Hakuhodo takes care and pride in every brush they make and it shows in the craftsmanship and quality. If you were thinking about purchasing Hakuhodo brushes I would seriously think about trying to get as many as you can before the price increase. You can purchase the brushes online at Hakuhodo USA. Shipping to the USA is a flat rate of 9.00. I typically receive my shipment three days after purchase.
