Handmade spatula scraped with a plane
Today, we would like to introduce Okubohouse's Cooking spatula！
Mr. Okubo works on woodwork products called "Kurimono", which are made by hollowing out a block of wood and carving it to create a shape.
It's a daunting manual process that keeps shaving wood with a plane until it has the ideal shape. Mr. Okubo orders a plane blade from a blacksmith according to the work he wants to do, and he also creates the tools themselves.
The bold curve, which looks like a boomerang, is calculated to hit the pot skin, and it is also characterized by the ease of returning the ingredients. The grip feels like it sticks to your hand, and you don't feel any stress on your fingers when you hold it.
Chestnut trees have excellent durability and water resistance, and are generally used as railroad ties and building materials, as well as as household materials. The wood is dense and hard, so it is easy to repel water and the rice grains do not stick to it.
In addition, its versatility is attractive because it can be used for crushing potatoes and for lining. The color changes as you use it, so you can enjoy aging!
