Five Swords | Hans Tan x Aoishima Aji Stone Mortar and Pestle
Five Swords: Mortar and Pestle Hans Tan x Aoishima Aji Stone
This mortar and pestle is crafted from Aji stone, an extraordinary granite mined from the foothills of Mount Goken. The mountain gets its name from its distinctive peaks, likened to “five swords” (goken). The hardness of this unique speckled granite is softened into a pestle and a mortar, cooking tools used since the Stone Age.
