"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.
These bottle openers were made as much for their aesthetic pleasure as their function. Their graphic appeal means they can be left around the kitchen or casually on a bottle on the table or even displayed as an art piece in your favourite spot.
The crude casting surface of the roughly cast brass gives these bottle openers a raw and organic feel. Brass changes its colour over the course of many years due to oxidisation; the longer they are used, the richer and subtler they become. Designed by Masanori OJI of Futagami which was founded in 1897 and has a long history of making brass artefacts. Completed by a presentation case, this bottle opener is a perfect gift or art piece.
