[Producer’s Remarks]
Suzuki Morihisa Koubou is a venerable manufacturer of Nambu ironware that has been run by the same family for 15 generations. At the same time, it is proactively engaged in development of new products that will bring this craft into modern life. The warm and delicate rust color carries a unique ambience. The product has a modern feel about it and is extremely easy to use. (Shinichiro Ogata)
