1,750 yen ($16.28 USD)

Bamboo artist Toru Hatsuta fashioned these kashikiri (sweets knife) from beautifully patterned "susudake" bamboo. Susudake is ceiling bamboo from traditional Japanese homes that have slowly colored by the warm smoke of the "irori" hearths over many decades . As the bamboo is often bound by ropes the exposed area take on a dark hue while the bound areas remain lighter. The resulting contrasts creates beautiful patterns on the bamboo. Each knife is unique.
