WAKU" means "frame" in Japanese. It's a bottle opener with a simple frame shape. The outer surface is hairline-finished while it has a crude casting surface inside.
Founded in 1897, FUTAGAMI has a long history of making brass artifacts used in the Buddhist traditions. Brass products gradually change their colour over the course of many years dues to oxidisation. The longer they are used, the richer they become.
