How to recognize authentic “Iwako” and copied products
Iwako is strongly particular about the colors by selecting or toning the colors in order to make the small erasers most attractive.
The number of colors Iwako use is surprising.
The color of copied is dull and not rich.
Burr is the parts that the material protruding from the mold and hardening by cold and the most
significant difference from Iwako and the copied is this burr.
There is no burr with genuine Iwako products because they are produced by the fine and delicate mold with the professional production circumstances by the long experience.
Same as the burr, Iwako can produce the beautiful erasers to assemble perfectly by the fine and delicate mold whose material is not worn by the time and the skills of production under the different environment of temperature, consistency, pressure.
The copied has the gap between the parts and the inside parts are visible because of the burr.
The copied are made of very soft materials, so its performance as the eraser is very low and hard to take in the parts and assemble.
It is totally different product from genuine Iwako Puzzle Eraser.
