Designer and metal artist Yumi Nakamura hand crafts her distinctive series of nickel silver cutlery at her studio in Nara City. Nakamura uses traditional hammering techniques to shape and give a subtle texture to the surface of each piece.

Kashi-yoji are used in Japan as a tool for cutting and eating small Japanese sweets. Traditionally they are designed with a sharper point at one end for picking up the sweets, but Nakamura's design functions more as a knife for dividing sweets into manageable portions.
