Kiri Burnt Wood Coffee Grinder
Shiori offers you a rather unique piece in its catalog: a coffee grinder in burnt kiri wood from the house of Iwamoto Kiyoshi Shoten.
With a minimalist and elegant appearance, it is entirely handmade in their Kanazawa workshop.
The Yaki-Kiri finish
It requires more time and effort on the part of the craftsman to obtain than usual, as each piece is burned, cleaned of soot and then polished individually by hand.
As a result, the relief and color of the beautiful grain of the wood are even more pronounced.
This treatment allows Kiri wood to be even more heat resistant. Additionally, discolorations and stains are less visible.
Size: L. 9 x W. 9 cm x H. 20.5 cm (size without handle.)
Material: Kiri wood (paulownia)
The mill blade
The body is slightly indented to make it easier to hold.
Trees of Kiri (paulownia)
Kiri wood has a beautiful lustrous grain, is resistant to moisture and drought and is lightweight. It has long been used in Japan to make chests of drawers, furniture, Geta (wooden shoes), musical instruments and containers for paintings and calligraphy.
The high quality of Kiri wood is characterized by its unique burnished and polished surface. In addition to being lightweight, moisture-resistant and flame-retardant, the more you use it, the more you will appreciate its color and shine.
Product features and notes.
The product is made by hand, one by one, which explains slight variations in size and shape. Additionally, as the raw wood used has a strong texture, the grain expression, color and weight vary from piece to piece.
It is a long-established family-owned Yaki-kiri wood burning craft business in Ishikawa Prefecture since 1913. Ishikawa Prefecture is home to many well-known traditional crafts, but Kanazawa Kiri Wood Crafts is a unique culture, unparalleled in the entire country.
