Awaji Island in Hyogo Prefecture, blessed with good soil, is one of the leading Kawara (Japanese traditional roof tiles) producing areas in Japan. Ripper is useful for cutting threads for seams and punching holes for buttonholes. The handle of the ripper is finished with Awaji Kawara.

This is a ceramic tile, one of the Awaji Kawara roof tiles, which is glazed and fired. The tiles have a smooth texture glossy color coat on the rustic texture. Two colors are available: gentle " White" and chic "Gray."

The handle is square in shape with a rounded edge. The length and thickness are designed to fit well into female hands. There is no small stress of rolling around in the middle of work. It has a nice weight and is not overly heavy to use.
