Metalworking

GRAVIMOROH is produced by the many artisans/companies in Tsubamesanjo, one of Japan's leading manufacturing areas. The best artisans use both manual and mechanical processes at a high level. It is an object created purely by simple processing techniques "cutting", "shaving", and "polishing".

The simpler the process, the more important it is for an artisan to have the technical skills. We are a group of artisans who thoroughly pursue the simplest process of "polishing", to beautifully and finely polished metal.
