I am a 'Men-Choko' Carved Glass. I'm a bit of an old fashioned glass myself, but I don't mind when people use me to dip soba noodles.
This glass has a rocky texture when you hold it created from carving into the glass after coating it with deep black enamel. The black comes through with hazy edges almost like a deep burgundy color. This technique showcases the complicated glassblowing techniques mastered by founder Kazumi Tsuji exceptionally. Founder Kazumi Tsuji of factory zoomer crafted these cups to be multi-purpose, for old-fashioneds, cocktails, dessert or its traditional use for noodles. 'Men' means 'noodle' in Japanese as this cup size is standard size for dipping cold soba noodles in sauce.
