The concept is “the spoon that delivers the exact taste.” Metallic spoons can so- metimes detract from the original taste of what is being eaten. Wood, glass, or porcelain are used as alternative materials, but we chose zirconia, a ceramic that has both a beautiful brilliance and strength to match. The bowl of the spoon is thinned to 0.6mm and is polished with care to create a gentle touch when it comes into contact with the mouth. The smoothness of the spoon to the mouth will gua- rantee a more enjoyable meal. Chopsticks served as an inspiration for the easy grip and balanced distribution of weight. The spoon is simple and stylish, with a grip made out of a light-weight carbon composite. (Description / ZIKICO) Launch Year / 2017

The zirconia ceramic is polished to 0.6mm with their own manufacturing techno- logy. Its thinness, its heartwarming white ceramic material, its oval line that serves to support the cuisine: these are all aspects of the product sure to impress. This spoon gives a brilliant, fresh sensation that makes you want to eat using it. I be- lieve that with their manufacturing technology, the thinness of the spoon’s bowl, and their passion for texture, they can produce be a nourishing product for Japa- nese sensibility.
