Deadline for Holiday Season Orders 2021

As the holiday season 2021 is approaching, we would like to remind you of our order deadline.

We highly recommend that you place a holiday order by September 15, 2021.

As many of our products have a lead time of 1 – 1.5 months after payment, the shipments for the orders received by the above date are scheduled to take place around the beginning of November.

It is highly likely that orders received after September 15th won’t make it before a marketing event like Black Friday.

So, hurry!

Price Change and Discontinued Items in FUTAGAMI and MATUREWARE

This is to announce that we will raise the pricing of all the FUTAGAMI and MATUREWARE items by September 2021. This rise is scheduled to be by but not limited to 10% approximately.

This is due to the continued substantial rise in the price of copper in the past years. (Please note that brass is an alloy of copper and zinc.)

We will continue to apply the current pricing to the orders we receive until August 24, 2021 (JST), followed by remittance by August 30, 2021 (JST).

The new pricing will be applied to orders we receive after August 25, 2021 (JST).

Please be advised that the above schedules will be strictly applied for providing a smooth transition from the current pricing to the new pricing in our computer systems.

We regret to inform you that we also have items to be discontinued from these two brands as of August 31, 2021 (JST). We will no longer be taking orders on these items from September 1, 2021 (JST).
