Wooden Surikogi Pestle
$ 6.00 USD– Sold Out
This wooden pestle (or surikogi) is intended to pair perfectly with our Ceramic Motoshige Suribachi Mortar. It is made from sustainably harvested wood and is soft enough to maximize the life of your suribachi.
A suribachi is a sturdy Japanese mortar with an unglazed interior that features many small groves that help mash and bruise seeds, herbs, and spices more efficiently than a smooth surface. These ridges (called kushi no me) bring out subtle aromatic compounds when gently pounded with a wooden pestle, or surikogi.
Dimensions: Small: 7” Length, 1” Diameter; Medium: 9.5” Length, 1.25” Diameter
Care: While the mortar is microwave and dishwasher safe, we suggest handwashing with mild soap and a soft brush. Dry both the mortar and pestle thoroughly prior to storage.
