Sansho Shurikogi: Japanese Pestle

This is not your typical pestle. The nobby, organic, maybe-someone-whittled-it-from-a-tree-branch-from-my-backyard-looking thing below is a Sansho Surikogi. It hails from a Japanese pepper tree (Sansho tree) and is believed to impart a slightly peppery hint to the food that it grinds. It is also believed to have healing powers. Sansho me more!
