Hime Forks – Silver
Boxed set of 5 forks.
Silver plated brass
Made in Japan
L 9.0 x W 0.7cm
Hime, the Japanese term for “Princess,” is also used to describe something precious and small. Distinctively fascinating, these unique Azmaya Hime Forks (set of 5), made from silver plated brass, are perfect for use with a cheese plate, fruits or other small confections.
The silver plating offers a protective coating to the brass, helping to prevent an otherwise naturally occurring oxidation.
After use, hand-wash well and wipe off moisture.
With age, the silver colour will turn to a deeper tone and develop a patina with use.
To polish, put a small amount of toothpaste, with no granules or salt, on a cotton cloth. Gently wipe. This will bring back much of the original colour.

Making the best use of skilled Japanese craftsmanship, Azmaya collaborates with artisans, designers, and small local manufactures to revive an old Japanese aesthetic sense.
From beautifully crafted tableware and functionally calculated kitchenware, their specialized housewares are made with a consistent commitment to using traditional techniques and only the highest quality materials found in Japan.
While respecting the traditions of Japanese craftwork, Azmaya creates something new by modifying the design to match tested Japanese “tools” with the present age. The collection features minimalist design reflecting the high level of skill and superior techniques of the artisans today.
Easy to use, made to last. Our new standard in everyday life.
