These high quality pestles are made from Japanese hinoki (cypress) wood and have a black leather hanging loop.

6" pestle is approx.

1" diameter, 3 1/4" loop.


The appropriate length of a pestle is approx. twice the diameter of the mortar you are pairing it with, however, can vary depending on what you are crushing.

Hand wash and dry immediately, taking care to not get the leather loop wet. Do not microwave, put in the dishwasher, or get near an open flame. Since this is made from natural wood there is slight differentiation in size and color.
