These elegant cast iron bottle openers are handcrafted in the Saburo Sumitani workshop in Takaoka, Japan and were designed 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 often 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 small, sleek bottle openers are painted with a layer of varnish containing urushiol and are therefore rustproof. The opener is located on the back part or foot of the crow.
