And filter types, are they all ball?
wait.... tell me to shut up if I'm asking too many questions.
No problem, Alex. I hope to answer the questions that I can at this point in time which is one reason I have an open topic.
I can answer this. Gisui seemed to do a lot of direct wall filters and fewer ball. Such is the case here, most are direct wall and some are ball.

Exactly. I would perhaps add the word pure. So true, pure, origin clay from Gisui's personal original stockpile. The shudei by implication would be blended or added to. More on this on Thursday in the shudei offering posts.

This question you will have to wait for the explicit, complete answer. However, in my research, the prices are considerably less than what I had previously seen for similar Gisui kyusu including the one I own and love which was from another vendor (not rocket science to figure out which one, but I am not going to single out another vendor). These prices are 25-50% less.
What a great opportunity to purchase a Gisui kyusu at a time when they are nowhere on the market.
I certainly credit Toru and the relationship I have with him for this as well as his knowing TeaChatters have probably paid for his cars over the years.
