This is made from truly rare Kuro-kaki (black persimmon) with beautiful black- and white-colored natural designs.
Kuro-kaki need to be dried up under open air for many years to be ready used as material for wooden artifacts. It is extremely difficult to handle this wood since white and black part has different shrinkage factors, that may often result in cracking during the drying process.
Kuro Kaki is a difficult material to handle. It should be thinly shaved first and then dried up. This process should be repeated over and over again before processing into Pieces Box.
Kuro Kaki (black persimmon) attracts many customers with its clear contrast between black and white colors. This product has simple but very beautiful natural patterns in bold black lines, which looks like true brush writing, that is very specific to Kurokaki products.
The board has camber arched top.
This product has official seal of "Takahashi Kougei", traditional wood craftsmen. Please check in the photo image.
