What is Netsuke?

Netsuke is a small sculptural vessel blending historic Japanese and modern everyday carry (EDC) items.

Netsuke is the result of several months of design and prototype collaboration with Chris Bathgate. On previous projects, Evolve Makers has shared every step with social media. We completed Netsuke in secret with only minor suggestions that something was coming.

Chris Bathgate wrote an excellent blog article detailing the project.
