KashiKiri (Dessert Knife)

Artist: Toru Hatsuta
2,500 yen ($22.45 USD)

Bamboo artist Toru Hatsuta fashioned these kashikiri ( sweets knife ) from beautifully patterned "susudake" bamboo. Susudake is ceiling bamboo from traditional Japanese homes that have slowly coloured by the warm smoke of the "irori" hearths over many decades . As tthe bamboo is often bound by ropes the exposed area take on a dark hue while the bound areas remain lighter. The resulting contrasts creates beautiful patterns on the bamboo.

Each knife has a unique pattern and will vary from what is pictured here. Kiri wood box included.
