As far as top Japanese exports go, this 3 piece Japanese cobbler shaker is right up there with sushi and 4runners. Made using only premium, heavy gauge Japanese stainless steel and precise machining techniques. The weight and balance allow for a fluid shake with great sound making it the choice of many of the world's top bartenders. The beautiful copper finish is very heavily plated with 10 microns of pure copper and then coated to protect the copper from tarnishing. Functional art in its tastiest form.
