would be another reason, that they won't dump it like Brahin.

You are right Martin, I did not go to China.
Fukang was brought out of China by a small group of people and I got a few
slices from one of them at a price comparable to Esquel.
Yes, I saw that picture too. Fukang is huge but also weathered and I am told
the whole thing will not be usable for slicing.
Finally, yes Fukang was available in Tucson, but only a few dealers had any,
and in moderate amounts, I could not say that the Show was flooded with
Fukang. In fact I saw a lot more Brenham, including of course Steve's Great New
Paperweight. ;-)

Meow to you too!!
