One Piece fans who enjoy meat here is the only utensil you'll ever require.
Anyone can eat like a future Pirate King thanks to the "Manga Meat Bone," which was handcrafted by artisans in Japan's Aichi Prefecture. Whether you want to take a more delicate approach and wrap slices of beef or pork around it for a Food Network-worthy plating presentation, or whether you want to thrust it through a hunk of meat and chow down like Luffy, the vendor claims that this fascinating piece of ceramic kitchenware has a variety of uses. Contrary to its name, the bone can also be used to enjoy bread or cakes while daydreaming about sailing the Grand Line.
The Origins of Kitchenware Made of Meat Bones
Although the bone makes one think of Luffy and his comedic antics, it actually comes from a much more serious and historical source. Made in the Seto-yaki fashion, named after the town of Seto, which is home to one of Japan's "Six Ancient Kilns," where craftsmen have been producing ceramics and pottery for more than a thousand years. The kilns are still in use today despite being recently recognized as Japan Heritage sites, producing expertly crafted meat bones that home cooks can use in ovens, microwaves, steamers, and even boiling pots, making them more durable than even the hardest rubber men.
One Piece has recently reached Chapter 1073, making it one of the longest-running manga series ever even though it hasn't quite reached its 1000th anniversary. Although the series' creator, Eiichiro Oda, has assured fans that it won't end anytime soon, his use of the term "Final Arc" suggests that the Shnen Jump mainstay's end may be approaching. In fact, that conclusion may have been revealed to fans earlier this month in a widely shared Reddit post from user gohdroger, who has a history of correctly predicting One Piece developments and who some believe may know Oda personally.Time will tell if these predictions prove true, but for now, fans can continue to enjoy the ride, with the manga resuming weekly publication last month after a brief hiatus.
Viz Media offers the One Piece manga in North America. The Manga Meat Bone is available for purchase online from sites like Amazon, Rakuten, and Yahoo! Shopping for interested fans.
