About Yamanaka-shikki

Yamanaka-shikki lacquerware originated in the Ishikawa prefecture of Japan, and the methods themselves have been used since the 18th century. Pieces are carved one-by-one by skilled artisans, masters of turning the lathe and carefully applying the blade to manipulate and shape the wood.

The secret of Yamanaka-shikki craftsmanship is tategidori, the way in which the artisans trim the wood used in crafting their wares. Tategidoriinvolves the cutting of wood horizontally, along the grain, rather than the common practice of cutting vertically. This results in a finished product that is far more durable and long lasting end product.

Truly a thing of beauty!

I have now used the red urushi dripper for 2 months now, and I still marvel at its beauty. Few drippers combine function and beauty so well. While the flow rate is a bit different, and requiring a minor grind adjustments, the coffe it produces is vibrate with a blast of flavor. The wooden material ensures that the dripper is never too hot to touch, but feels light enough that I feel like I need to cuddle it like a baby. Overall, my red urushi dripper has its special place in my collection, and I look forward each time I use it.
