Futagami Brass & Tin Chopping Board Holder
|Delivery time:||within 2 months (made to order)|
A stable chopping board holder making the most of the weight and water-ressistance of the brass material
Despite of its compact size, it holds a large chopping board with a thickness of up to 30mm steadily.
(w73 x d85 x h66mm)
The holder is made of solid brass with no pleating nor painting. It has a bright polish at first, but the color gradually gets darker to show a distinctive patina due to oxidization. If you prefer the bright look, you can always polish it to bring back the original color.
The inner surface with which a chopping board touches is lined with tin. The bottom part is lined with silicone so that it won't damage the surface on which the tool holder is placed.
This product is designed by Oji Masanori, an awarded Japanese designer of household objects. The hooks are made in a brass foundry established in 1897 in the city of Takaoka, Japan. To create the hooks, melted brass is poured into molds made out of hardened sand. The molds are then cracked to remove the cast brass hooks. Then the hooks are filed and sanded to create a semi-smooth sandy and unique surface, called Ihada.
TAKING CARE OF THIS PRODUCT
In order to bring back the original bright polish, you can use a cloth and polish made for brass. Wash afterwerths with a dishwashing detergent, then rinse with water and dry completely.
