Triangular rod is one of the fundamental tools in shaping wagashi, such as nerikiri and konashi, into abstract art pieces depicting seasons and nature. The classic trio of sharp, blunt, and double edges are handcrafted onto this especially agile tool, thanks to its shorter length, while the pistil stamp at the end is made into an unconventionally chic 7mm.
The iconic ICHIKA kamon logo is branded onto one of the three sides in the hands of a retired Japanese artisan specializing in wagashi tool woodwork. Limited stock left.
