Crafted using the yaki-gata method, theis pieces showcases the beauty of cherry blossoms blooming in the distinctive 'marunambu-gata' shape.
The intricate design incorporates the motif of plucking, featuring a pounding hammer. This tool, famously held by Daikokuten, one of the Seven Lucky Gods, symbolizes wealth.
The handle is a meticulously crafted forging, its contours drawing a distinctive arc. It exudes a graceful charm reminiscent of the robe worn by a celestial maiden in a folk tale. Not only is it aesthetically pleasing, but it is also highly functional, providing an ergonomic grip. The handle's hollow design serves a dual purpose, allowing for easy handling while effectively dissipating heat buildup.
