Sweets cut. It is also called another name, Kuromoji, toothpick.
Kashikiri is also known as a tool for tea ceremonies, but it has the image of a toothpick that can be used repeatedly. For snack time sweets, fruits, etc. It is recommended that you use it casually even when you have guests.
This kashikiri is produced by a workshop that handles authentic tea utensils. It is made under the supervision of the head of the school, but it is mainly designed for daily use at home rather than for tea ceremony. Therefore, rather than cutting it, it is shaped like a way to stab and eat yokan or fruit.
The best feature is the material, old It is made from old bamboo that was used in the attic of the thatched roof of Japanese houses. It is a real soot bamboo that has been smoked by the smoke of the hearth for many years. It is a limited and precious material that comes out when old folk houses are dismantled. High-quality tea scoops are made from this material, but the material was not thick enough or long enough to be used for making sweets.
Soot bamboo is a sufficiently dried material, but instead of using it as it is, it is processed to remove oil, and the shaving process is often done by hand.
It can be washed and used repeatedly, but the wood itself has not been finished and painted to retain the texture of the old wood, so please wipe it off immediately after washing. please give me.
▼About the direction of the blade We have some questions about the direction of the blade, but we make it according to the specifications (the direction of the blade) as shown in the photo.
Depending on the school of tea ceremony, there are cases where the direction of cutting the blade and the front and back when using it may not be suitable in some cases, but the specifications are as shown in the photo, so please check and consider.
Based on the characteristics of the bamboo material, this product is made mainly for daily use, considering that it can be used not only for cutting but also for stabbing, and that the strength of the skin surface differs between the inside and outside of bamboo.
▼About the shape of the blade Since the blade is made by shaving natural bamboo and old wood, the shape of the blade is adjusted to prevent cracks and chips depending on the material and condition. Therefore, there may be some variations in the shape of the blade. Please note.
▼About wood grain Susutake refers to old bamboo, and there are various types of bamboo. In addition, due to many years of aging, there are considerable individual differences in color and expression.
