Edo Kiriko is traditionally made from crystal glass, which is a softer, heavier type of glass that is more suitable for cutting and produces an exceptional shine. Crystal glass is particularly preferred for expensive alcohol such as fine whiskey, wine, or sake, but can add a touch of class to any type of drink.
Wash gently with soap and water. Do not use abrasive scrubbers as this can damage the glass. Should grime get into the facets of the glass, use a toothbrush or other gentle brush to clean it out.
