Clover

Takumi is the masterpiece of craftsmanship that is the product of carefully selected materials along with Clover's high quality manufacturing technology. Place of origin is limited to cold aareas with little snow, since such bamboo is most desirable for knitting needles. Large amounts of snow results in bent bamboo. Appropriately aged Bamboo is selected, too young is too soft and too old and the bamboo is too fragile. The bamboo is cut in the winter, since the bamboo has less moisture and the fiber is more compact. Only the thicker bamboo sections are used, since these sections are are compact, hard and strong.
