There was that interview where Hiroki explained that it was his no-compromises approach to manufacturing that was the reason for the cost.
The pool of artisans that have the skills and tooling he needs is getting smaller and smaller.

I picked up an e-cat the other day, the quality is great and the bag is in brilliant shape considering the age.
Some of the old visvim pieces of that era can't be beaten.

The plastic clips were shite on e-cats also the button on the strap. Mines didn’t break but so many on eBay at that time sold with snapped clips.

Soon as the new US, Australian and Chinese trade deals come in the pounds gonna be fine. UK is the most diverse and robust economy in Europe.
Pretty sure it's been the uncertainty about Brexit that's been dragging the pound down. Once it's done the UK will be on the up and up.
