My name is Harald Hayen, my artist name is Hako. That is `Ha`from Hayen and `Ko`from my favourite carver Minko. Since my 60th birthday, I sometimes use the signature KOSAI as well. I live in northern Germany in a town called Sandkrug. Carving netsuke since 1975 I did about 1600 pieces till today.
I am carving as a hobby for myself only. This is what I like.
