You're not the only that received an email from Pierre today Ed...
I asked for something simple and elegant (preferably ebony) to match an ebony handled suji that I have on order from Jon. Pierre expressed some concern about my choice of ebony (which he explained has a tendency to want to crack with time), but he used some special wood that he has had drying for 7 years (!), so I should be in good shape. Two black pins (tough to see but they're there) with a single mosaic pin in the center.
It looks exactly like what I had in mind. I can't wait to see it in person and will post again when it arrives.
