The 'Monkey' bottle opener in the shape of a sitting monkey was hand-forged in the Saburo Sumitani workshop in Takaoka, Japan, and is a design by Tadahiro Baba. The Japanese designer was born in Kyoto in 1930, his designs are closely linked to the traditional Japanese craft of Nambu Tekki (cast iron), and at the same time have a distinctive and modern sense of humor. Takaoka is located in the Toyama region of Japan, which is famous for Nambu Tekki with a manufacturing tradition looking back on 400 years of history. The heavy, supple bottle opener is painted with a layer of varnish containing urushiol and is therefore rustproof.
