Description:
This whimsical rabbit bottle opener is designed by Tadahiro Baba, an expert nambu tekki (cast iron) designer. Baba brings a modern sensibility to this traditional craft and draws his inspiration from nature. Each cast iron bottle opener is finished with an urushi coat (Japanese lacquer) for a rich black appearance that is resistant to rust.   Over time however, you may see the urushi wear off to reveal a silver-brown patina underneath, which is part of its natural beauty.  Grip the bunny by the body and use its hind legs to pull off the cap to your favorite soda or ice cold beer!

Variation:
The lacquer coating may be uneven in parts to reveal a silver-brown patina underneath.  This is part of its natural beauty.

History: 
Nambu Tekki developed as a celebrated Japanese craft in the mid 17th century. Today, this method of cast iron production is still highly popular, valued for its comforting weight, deep black appearance, and resistance to rust.

Care Instructions:
Store in a dry area.   Store in a dry area.  Wash with soap and water, and dry immediately. Abrasive scrubbers and chemicals can remove the urushi faster.    
Chipping and wearing off of the urushi may occur naturally with use.  If moisture makes contact with these areas, you may see rust.  Rust is not harmful, and is best avoided by keeping away from moisture.
