Mr. Kazuo Kurahashi, whose nickname is Kura-san, is one of expert Tenkara fishers and also a semi-professional wood-craft worker.
He was born in1967 in Okayama of western Japan. He met Tenkara fishing in Chubu area where he lived when he was 30 years old. Since that time Tenkara fishing has been his most favorite hobby for about 20 years.
On the other hand, he likes making things since he was a child and is currently researching and producing kebari cases for Tenkara kebari.

The material of this hand-made kebari box is Hinoki = Japanesecypress.
Hinoki is characterized by its beautiful wood grain, strong yet lightweight, and easy to process. In Japan, Hinoki has been widely used for wooden buildings and furnitures since ancient times. Hinoki is one of the best and readily available timbers anywhere in Japan.
Kura-san believes it is Tenkara style to give value to such simple hand-made items made of familiar materials.

The case is very compact and lightweight. The size of the case is approximately 118 mm (W) x 70 mm (D) x 22 mm (H) and weight is only 45 g. No fancy, very simple. The paint and adhesive used for the case is very safe paint and adhesive which we use for dishes. ※ The paint uses "cashew paint". Cashew paint is made from oil extracted from cashew nutshell. We often use cashew paint as a substitute for lacquer.

8 compartments are sized to store #10 or smaller kebari "not too many but too little".
If you don't like the size, you can remove the inner partitions and make it by yourself.
The outer box is kept as it is, only the interior can be customized.

The cork sheet laid on the bottom is the only decoration.

Go out to a mountain stream for evening fishing with minimal tackles. Expecting dense fishing, choose a kebari thinking of the weather and time and watching the flow, water temperature and insect fly. Kura-san made this kebari case with the image like this.

These kebari cases are meticulously hand crafted and built to last by Kura-san. He wishes each one of them to be used till they’re well-torn and worn.
