Suribachi Pestle & Mortar
The surikogi, or Japanese pestle, is a durable wooden tool for use in conjunction with the suribachi mortar. Using a wooden pestle increases the mortars longevity, contributing to the popularity of this item.
The pestle is made out of sansho wood, which is traditionally the material of choice as it imparts a subtle flavor on ingredients. This size is ideal for use with our smaller suribachi 8.5cm mortar.
