    Are you looking for a picture of a genuine example? If so, remember color can not always be accurate in a photograph.

    Well the correct finish is called Urushi shelac or varnish made from a type of sumac tree. It is not something you can currently buy.

    I did not know that. Urushi is very volitile and can cause severe blistering on any part of the skin that comes in touch with it. Years ago at a Japanese sword show in Dallas, there was some idiot selling it. Someone placed it on the telephone handles and the flush handles of the urinals. It caused a lot of problems in very sensitive areas of the body for many.

    I found that info on the Bonzai web site a while ago. You are correct Bob. It is like a type poison ivy.
