I’m glad to write you that I decided to keep the bow with me. I like it very much. As my former bow was too flexible, I could not do well with your bow on the first day. On the second day, however, I began to like it. I showed it to my teacher, Ms Setsuko, and she assured me that I should have it. She praised your bow in detail, but I cannot translate her delicate expression from Japanese to English. I think I will use this for my life long (maybe 15 or 20 years). Thank you.
