Takahashi Hidetoshi is a master craftsman in wood. At his family-run workshop in Asahikawa, Hokkaido, woodenware is created using a lathe and hand finish. Takahashi Kougei create simple yet functional artifacts making the best of wood materials. Wood is a natural insulator.
"KAKUDO" means "angle" in Japanese. Certain variations of angles give the tableware unique functions and forms. Every corner and/or edge is finished to give a round shape with gentle details. A series of articles for daily use with "kakudo (angle)" and a round finish. The fitting edges are angled at 45 degrees so that the lid sits tightly on the case.
The Kakudo series is finished with a food safe oil, and so these pieces require the care for any oiled wooden tableware, they will benefit from periodic brushing with vegetable oil and allowing the oil to soak into the wood. Do not leave to soak and not suitable for the dishwasher.
