Ok, here's the viper underneath the grass (liberally translated from Dutch). Yaqi only submits a limited amount of pieces/brushes for a discounted price. When that amount (20-50 pieces) is reached, the price will be the normal price again. So only a few people worldwide can profit from these deals. So I feel a bit made happy with a dead house sparrow….
The normal prices are already quite good, don't cry . It happens, it some as some US artisan dropping brushes in a small batch.
In English you would say, the catch is ... instead of viper underneath the grass.
