However, when I took a look and thought that they were not in the same league, I noticed that they were of lesser quality than the ones made for the SO and didn't mind it at all.
I think that these new Rocks that have shown up recently are not as good as those from the SO. Hence the ones from the SO are worth more money. It's almost as if these new ones are leftovers from the SO deemed not good enough. (To me anyway...)
It could be that some of you like them better (I think two new ones have been posted on eBay recently?) but I very much prefer those from the SO.
I am very happy with mine (LOVE LOVE LOVE it.) and I am sure that Shibuya Eiichi's pieces will be very expensive in a few years.
Also, it's the starting price of an auction, not a "buy it now" price...
A constantly used Rock gathers no stains.
