Handy for writin'

This week I cover an object you rarely see in use today, in fact I've only seen one person pull one out and use it, and that person was an artist from Japan.

This week I bring you information on the:

yatate (portable Ink and brush kit) 矢立

These days with such modern implements as cartridge filled brushes and even that thing called the ball point pen we don't see too many yatate in use.

The following phrase is unclear:

"Yatate could be attached by simply sliding it by the stem to an obi"

Err—"into an obi"? "Tying it by the stem"? ^_^; Also, "Path of the Assassin" should be italicized.

Dr Watson:

I again thank you for your powers of observation.

Between you and Ono-san in Tokyo I have excellent editors.

I will endeavor to do better in the future.
