Yesterday, December 31, 2007, I visited the home/workplace of Korean fletcher, and now Intangible Cultural Asset, Kim Byong-wook. He made a beautiful cased set of a bow and arrows. Here it is for your viewing pleasure.

"Signature" calligraphy in the lower right-hand part of the display. It tells not only his name and pen-name, it also says that he is an Intangible Cultural Asset in the #47 category (archery).

Points on arrows.

Arrow fletching and nocks.
