Soba (buckwheat noodles) is an integral part of Japanese food culture. Brought over to Japan from China during the Jomon period over 2,000 years ago, soba evolved into its current form around 400 years ago. Handmade soba could be called a truly traditional Japanese dish.
This six-piece set of soba-making equipment was developed to allow people to easily make their own soba at home. Each piece has been meticulously crafted, ensuring a high level of quality and making this what could be called the definitive soba-making equipment.
The konebachi or kneading bowl, is shaped to prevent buckwheat flour from escaping from the bowl, while making it easy to mix with water.
The grip of the soba knife is hand-finished to fit in the hand comfortably. The set embodies the ethos of Japanese craftsmen who are mindful of the convenience of consumers. For anyone wanting to experience the joy of making this traditional Japanese dish, this soba-making set provides a good way to get started.
