Our White Charcoal is produced using the same methods and processes that have been used for centuries. In this ancient Japanese method, pieces of wood are baked in hand-built clay kilns, - low temperatures at first and then at extremely high temperatures with restricted oxygen. This allows carbon to be captured in the wood, a process called pyrolysis. Perfecting the difficult ritual of burning requires patience and dedication and the people who produce White Charcoal are artisans and often have a family history of being charcoal makers. Although many Asian countries produce Binchotan, Kishu Binchotan is superior due to the potent combination of the best quality Japanese Oak and the traditional unique craftsmanship.
Naturally we like to see our customers happy with their order, but should you need to return your order, you can do so up to 7 days after the day of delivery.
