Background

Sori Yanagi was born in Tokyo, Japan in 1915. His father, Soetsu Yanagi started “Mingei (Japanese folk art)” promotion, which valued hand-crafted art of ordinary people and discovered beauty in everyday ordinary objects. Soetsu also helped to establish the Nihon Mingeikan, the Folk Crafts Museum of Japan.

Sori entered Tokyo Art School in 1934, where he studied both art and architecture. He was impressed by Le Corbusier as well as by Charlotte Perriand when she worked in Japan in the early 1940s, and he got more interested in “design and objects” rather than paintings and buildings.

After World War II, Sori designed many kinds of products such as furniture, three-wheeled vehicle, Olympic cauldron, and pedestrian overpass. The water kettle was one of his most famous designs, which included the Butterfly chair in 1954 as well as his porcelain and silverware series.

Nihon Yoshokki Co Ltd was founded in 1955 in Tsubame City, Niigata Prefecture, Japan, which is the center of cutlery and steel manufacturing. It manufactures most of the Sori Yanagi-designed kitchenware and tableware.

    Perfect!

    First, packing: The product arrive at perfect condition. Thank you GlobalKitchenJapan! Second, product: I really like product that is made in Japan. To me, the word "Made in Japan" not just the origin of product, but more importantly it represents something in extreme good quality. All Sori Yanagi products I purchased this time also carry the same philosophy. Full of thoughtful design in every detail, together with very good craftsmanship.

    An excellent product!

    The Japanese design and craftmenship is exceptional. The tongs work very well - from the way they pick-up food to how they feel in your hand. Quality of the material is very good.

    Great product!

    It is a perfectly designed and executed product. I have been looking for tongs just like that. Very well made from proper steel.

    Excellent quality and are suitable for lots of things, not just the salad

    These are excellent for "fishing" anything out of deep fryer, or bouillon or any other purpose where you need the tongs that would allow the liquid to drain while you're picking up something. The original purpose for these tongs was for serving salad, and they work for that too, but they're technically a bit too small for the "Western" tastes when it comes to salad tongs. Being all stainless steel they're dishwasher safe. Easy cleanup!
