Saburo Hamanaka and Shiro Hamanka collaborated to design a collection of rustic coffee mugs made for consumers with a fine attention to detail and appreciation for quality in their drinkware.

In order to ensure that more preferences were included in the collection, the two offer a vast variety of different finishes, which range from sleek and polished to vintage and artfully rusted. No matter what particular variation appeals to each consumer, the rustic coffee mugs all feature a design of two pistols crossing over, adding to its masculine and Western-inspired look.

While some show just the pistols, others include a star, or a series of stars above it. In others, delicate crowns are shown above the pistols. The purpose of the pistols pointing against one another is said to be a symbol of peace, as it shows how violence is inverted when one participates in it.
