Hand-crafted Bamboo Tsukune Maker by Ishikawa Takenomise

Based in Arashiyama in Kyoto, Ishikawa Takenomise has been hand-crafting original bamboo products since 1935. They only select the best quality bamboo in Sagano, which is located in the western part of Kyoto. 

This well-designed, easy to use Bamboo Tsukune Maker is traditionally used to create tsukune or chicken meatballs. Simply fill the bamboo scoop with the filling, then use the included bamboo scraper to push out the filling-- naturally creating a ball shape through the force. It not only allows the user to quickly create the meatballs without having to touch the meat itself, but also it creates beautiful presentation at the table. Feel free to create other items of your choice, such as different meatballs or fish balls (tsumire).

It's the perfect tool to create meatball hot pot in one of our Classic-style Donabe.
