Two ends of this tool has rounded bulbous tips of different sizes, useful for pushing into wagashi materials such as nerikiri or konashi in making concave patterns and indentations that are natural looking. The bulbous design can be held at different angles to impart impressive variations. The intricately carved line on one side of each bulbous tip brings ornamental effects, allowing for even more design possibilities.
