As you\u2019re probably aware, Japanese craftsmanship often entails treating\u00a0every aspect of design with the utmost degree of seriousness and precision. Such\u00a0a dedicated stance applies to all things\u00a0big and small, meaning there is no object so mundane that it can't use an artisanal upgrade. Here to prove as much is the KAKUDO\u00a0Butter Case, which signifies\u00a0a refined approach toward\u00a0a household object most of us probably\u00a0take for granted.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nHandmade in Japan using sustainable, felled timber from the forests of mountainous Hokkaido, the KAKUDO\u00a0Butter Case represents a partnership between renowned designer Oji Masanori and master\u00a0craftsman Takhashi Kougei. Accordingly, the case exudes the kind of elegant simplicity and timeless minimalist aesthetic we've come to associate with the best of Japanese artisanship. There\u2019s something quietly brilliant about those smooth, richly detailed wooden panels and perfect proportions. The word Kakudo translates to \u201cangle\u201d, reinforcing exactitude as well as the unfettered manner in which the lid slides organically into the base.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe KAKUDO\u00a0Butter Case comes in two different sizes and three different colours of walnut, cherry and maple. Included with every purchase is a wooden butter spreader made with the same level of precision and refinement as the case itself. The KAKUDO Butter Case is made to last and will duly elevate the interior of any kitchen by way of its perfect structure and timelessly smooth aura, so don\u2019t scoff at its price tag of $198 AUD.\r\nCheck it out\r\nHave you subscribed to Man of Many?
