In Japan, a three-piece cobbler shaker like this one is essential for the Hard Shake, a cocktail making technique created by legendary bartender Kazuo Uyeda. For practical reasons, this shaker is ideal for its smaller size--its fits very comfortably in your hand, and the lightness makes your 30-second shake more enjoyable. Made in Japan by Yukiwa, a well respected maker of high quality bar accessories. Stainless steel. 17 oz. capacity.
