But it is not suitable for items that are directly exposed to fire, as this will damage the urushi lacquer.

Kintsugi Repair Kit
Perfect set and explanations! Thank you!
Lovely kit to get started. Hope to buy more from this seller.
The kit arrived with a punctured tube of urushi, so the seller sent me a new one free of charge and it arrived very quickly. I am excited to repair a broken sake cup from my partner's fav set.
