● Ongoing R&D

2021. 8. 23.

1. 18K eureka gold nib developing (replaces previous AuAg, 14K nibs)

   *taking a break from nib making/research (for personal health reasons)

2. new asymmetry design for urushi (thinner than the previous version, shares parts with symmetry)

3. various end designs (cone top, flat top, etc.)

4. gold powder fabrication

5. researching eureka chinkin v3.0 (absolute sharp lines, super precision, various shapes/grooves possible, flat style chinkin)
