Sansho Surikogi Pestle

$ 6

Ideal for effortlessly mashing a variety of ingredients, this Sansho Surikogi Pestle complements Motoshige's mortar bowls perfectly.

Made to go with Motoshige’s mortar bowls (White and Black), this pestle is made from the Japanese Sansho pepper tree, a material cherished since ancient times for its exceptional durability, and was thought to improve gastrointestinal health. The irregularities of the wood offer a natural look and feel while still providing a comfortable yet strong grip, making it an ideal tool for grinding ingredients.


Motoshige, a company well known throughout the world for manufacturing Japanese mortars and graters was established back in 1925 inheriting the traditional Iwami Pottery. The region they are located in has a special type of clay that consists properties of excellent durability, low water absorbency as well as it is very resistant to acids, salt, and alkalis. Focusing on their motto of ease of use and good quality, Motoshige strives to continue making products that will satisfy every customer needs by incorporating new ideas.
