On our first trip to Kyoto many years ago, we were walking along the Philosophers Path taking in the lush greenery and stillness of the area. At the top we saw a little shop that resembled a sweet old machiya. As we approached, we realised it was a small homewares store selling kitchenware. We purchased an iron bottle opener as a souvenir. Being one of the most used and solid items in our kitchen, we decided to reach out to them and ship them in so you can enjoy them at home.
Made primarily by hand, these cold pressed iron pans are crafted by the artisan workshop of FD STYLE in Niigata, Japan. A special coating called OXYNIT increases hardness, as well as rust and scratch resistance. The patented process involves nitrating and oxide-coating the iron surface, which results in a characteristic uneven colouring – this in no way affects the quality or performance, but is a unique effect of this innovative and skilled treatment. All handles are made from laminated bamboo.
All FD Style products are crafted by hand in Niigata, where metalworking is a regional specialty
