Wooden Rice Paddle Shou Sugi Ban Yakisugi Inspired Finish

Wooden Rice Paddle Shou Sugi Ban Yakisugi Inspired Finish
Our new Kuro line of flame blackened finished utensils is inspired by a centuries old Japanese finishing technique called Yakisugi - often misnamed in architecture as Shou Sugi Ban

This technique involves masterfully charring the utensil over an open flame taking care not to start the utensil on fire or char it excessively. It provides a silky-smooth finish, makes it less likely to absorb aromas, stain, or blacken/burn further.

The utensil is then has any over-charred areas scraped clean, washed, then finished with a natural oil similar to Yakisugi.

This listing is for our Rice Paddle which makes scooping up sticky rice so satisfying. Available in these styles:
Midnight - a full, ebony, char which covers the entire utensil.
Basin - A char of the bowl of the spoon leaving the wood color of the natural wood on the handles and back of the spoon.
Dipped - Gives a modern appearance of being dipped in liquid onyx with no stain/dye finish.
