Futagami Brass Magnet Set - Chess

Availability: In stock (2)

A (super strong) magnet fit for a Queen. While certainly suitable for the fridge, these solid brass sand-cast pieces feature incredibly strong neodymium magnets, the creative potential of which are only limited by the number of magnet-friendly surfaces in your house. 1" x 2/3" x 2/3"

Take Care: Unlacquered brass will achieve a beautiful patina over time. To maintain the original luster, simply buff occasionally with a polishing cloth.

About the line: Founded in 1897, Futagami began producing beautiful brass altar fittings for Japanese Buddhist monasteries and the zen tradition continues today. Hand smelted, poured, finished, filed, and polished in the Toyama prefecture, these exceptionally elegant brass pieces are a pleasure to hold and use. The labor-intensive process, which includes molding into layers of fine-silted earth, is designed to highlight the distinctive "ihada" finish, a subtly rough surface texture that brilliantly plays up the brass' natural tendency towards use-based patina. Use these, love them, and watch them get better with age.
