Every bar deserves the finest tools. These Japanese cast iron bottle openers molded in the shape of traditional tools take it to a whole new level.
Nambu Cast Iron was first made in the middle of 17th century in Northern Japan in the mineral rich region of Iwate. A master from Kyoto was summoned by the lord to create an iron pot for a tea ceremony and hence the genesis of Nambu Cast Iron. It became exemplary of Japanese traditional craft and remains in demand today for its long history of fine craftsmanship and design.
Made in Japan.
Saikai was founded in 1946 in the Arita and Hasamiyaki region of Japan which is known for its simple yet elegant white and painted colored porcelain. In 1991 Saikai moved to Los Angeles whereby they introduced the form and function of Aritayaki across the United States. In recent years they have continued their Japanese influence on American design with their utilitarian home products that aren’t influenced by trends but by centuries of culture.
Saikai continues to develop original merchandise while collaborating with designers in their native country of Japan. All their products are made by skilled artisans in Japan.
