S/N Bottle Opener (SN009)

Regular price $65 Unit price  per 

Description:
S/N is an expression of understated luxury through traditional craft. This palm size bottle opener will be a functional object on our counter or in a cabinet. The brass will patina as it ages, exposing its true beauty over time.

Variation:
Each brass piece is handmade so there may be slight variation. Brass will patina over time, so its appearance and texture will change with use.

History:
The S/N series is collaborative line designed by Tortoise owner, Taku Shinomoto, and hand-made by the master craftspeople behind Nousaku Works. Located in the historical city of Takaoka, Takaoka City in Toyama Prefecture has a 400-year history of metal casting. Utilizing casting techniques handed down from generation to generation, Nousaku was established in 1916 primarily as a producer of Buddhist altar equipment, tea utensils, and flower vases. In recent years, the company has turned its focus to tableware, interior goods, and lighting fixtures, breaking the mold of a traditional industry by making products to complement modern lifestyles.

Measurement:
3.38" W x 1.63" D x .38" H 


Materials:
Solid Brass

Care Instructions:
Brass will naturally patina over time. Oil and air will naturally darken this piece and make it shinier. This is part of its natural beauty. Do not use chemicals to clean. If exposed to water or moisture for long periods of time, it may cause the metal to change color quicker or spot.
