Dunno how we haven't come across these before - about the most beautiful bottle opener in the world ... Nambu Tekki crows.
Nambu cast iron dates from mid 17th century Japan. Originally the technique was used to create ceremonial iron teapots, but is now a well established craft, with the black color the result of a rust resistant urushi glaze.
Can't find them for sale here (again!) - but love them enough to be considering an online purchase, if it comes to that. They sell 'em at Mjölk ... hmmmmm.
