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.

    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!

    Tongs for all needs

    Superb stainless perforated tongs for straining noodles, deep and shallow frying, etc. and great for getting pickles out of the jar.

    Excellent Product!

    I really like my new Sori Yanagi Stainless Steel Perforated Tongs. They fulfill a need I've had for a long time, that being an easy way to pick noodles out of boiling water without dropping them. I also use them to pick kale out of hot blanching water; broccoli out a hot steamer; kombu out of hot dashi soup stock; etc., etc. I highly recommend them.
