Lue Brass Cake Server #37, handmade by Japanese metalworker Ruka Kikuchi (aka Lue).
He makes these servers by hammering a form for the main scoop and then attaching a brass strip as a handle, which he then shapes using various tools on a wooden block.
As time progresses you'll find that this slice will patina and darken as the metal oxidises, also reacting to the natural oils on ones hands. Each is unique, featuring little scratches up-close where the craftsman has been at work.
Made to last for many years to come.
Handmade in Okayama, Japan.
