This innovative tool reshaped the triangular rod, one of the fundamental tools in shaping wagashi, such as nerikiri and konashi, into a new light. The moon shaped curve brings about new angles and surfaces to be impressed. Intricately crafted single and double sharp edges surround the rod, while the pistil stamp at the end is made into a remarkably delicate 5mm.
Made in Japan.
Material: cherry wood

The specialty wagashi tools Gusta sources are from reputable makers. They exhibit the craftsmanship that is respected also in wagashi making.
