About Suribachi and Surikogi
A suribachi is a sturdy Japanese mortar with an unglazed interior featuring numerous small grooves designed to mash and bruise seeds, herbs and spices more efficiently. These ridges - called kushi no me - help bring out subtle aromatic compounds when worked with a wooden pestle, or surikogi.
