The production of lacquer begins with the collection of sap by cutting "urushi"
About 150g of sap are collected from each tree. Lacquering is called
"kyushitsu"and more than 10 basecoats are applied. The deep luster of Lacquer
is the ultimate in beauty, created by many layers of urushi and repeated polishing.
"Polishing" technology, fostered by the Japanese for centuries, is also utilized in
"metallic molding". Metallic molds, where even slight unevenness is not tolerated,
are polished to perfection with the sensitive touch of the fingers and palms of
Everything is done for the perfect polish.
"Metallic molding"is the starting point of product manufacturing. The relationship
between products and metallic molds is so close that it is not an overstatement
to say that without metallic molds, there would not be any products. Especially
due to the miniaturization and weight-reduction of electronic devices, individual
parts have become more detailed and complicated. In order to pursue
micro-unevenness in the microscopic world, a soul is transplanted into the metal
through gentle and careful polishing, sometimes by using modified tools.
