A certificate (diploma) box inspired by Samurai armor for which the stiff protective bamboo plates where joined with knots.
This design uses different textures, the exterior has a smooth and polished finish, while the interior is left rough sawn. This feature is a reminder of the way each Menkyo box is made: all the parts of each box are cut from the same block of wood.
The sides are joined with cotton tape and it is available in 3 finishes: natural, ebonized, and Special Edition Red.
Please allow 1 to 2 weeks for finishing and preparation before we can ship this product. If you want to offer it as a gift, and you think it will not make it in time, consider having us send a card like this one.

"Fire unit" is a very special edition of our certificate box, inspired by the battle strategy of Yamagata Masakage. This Samurai leader dressed his unit in shiny red armor, so to create confusion and terror in its enemy.
The box is finished with red milk paint, which is intense and opaque but still lets us enjoy the wood grain. Several layers of oil, finished by hand-polishing with grass fibers, give it a very natural sheen.
As in most of our designs, you will receive the Menkyo box in its own very nice spruce wooden packaging.
You'll have a good time making the knots to close this design.
