It has been some years we have been working on our Barware catalog, many of you have followed our prototypes, being more and more perfect as the time went by, and we finally have proudly introduced the SKR-Class Istanbul Shakers, dubbed the "Şakir".

From the extensive research that we have done, we do not think that ANY shaker comes close in quality and build, except the same shaker, if made from Pure Solid Silver, therefore surpassing this item in conductivity

We call it "Istanbul" shaker because as the City of Istanbul that spans on two different continents, the Şakir is constructed from two different metals, Silver and Copper, giving it a two-tone appearance and a two colour hue that will take a patina differently as time goes on.

Entirely handmade by spinning and hammering massive 1.5mm Pure Copper -yet ensuring perfect vacuum- and plated in thick 50μ of pure silver on the inside and on both sides of the head module, this shaker has namely two VERY important advantages over its stainless steel counterparts:

1- Its construction from thick copper and silver ensure that the drink is cooled not only from the ice used to shake it but also from the metal walls of the shaker, and this in a matter of milliseconds after you start shaking, finishing your coctail 2-3 times faster than a conventional shaker.

2- The sheer weight of the product, as it is manufactured from 1.5mm copper instead of 1mm steel, gives you an ultimate control over your shaking, letting the container direct the move and not the liquid inside it.

3- Most important of all, the fact that the product has walls from Silver, makes any kind of Dry and Reverse-Dry Shaking processes obsolete, as Silver will react with the protein chains and foam-up the cocktail right away, whether it contains ice or not, and this, in a matter of mere seconds.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The volumes shown here are only the useful capacities, the real volumes account for 40% more than what is indicated.

Use:
  • * WARNING! COPPER DOES NOT WORK ON INDUCTION COOKTOPS WITHOUT AN INDUCTION ADAPTER PLATE!
  • * Do not use your Soy in the microwave, copper & silver are metals after all!
  • * Do not use metal utensils or scratch your Soy as it will remove the platingHand-wash your Soy and do not put in the diswasher.
  • * Use mild dishwashing soap and do not use metal sponges or the green side of the sponge
Care
  • * Given the nature of the metal, both copper and silver will change color and tarnish as they get used & upon contact with air, water, and acidic ingredients.
  • * This is totally normal and doesn't affect cooking properties.
  • * They are still safe to use and there is no health risks.
  • * If you want to get them back to their original state, just rub your Soy with a lemon sliced in half, covered with table salt or baking soda.
  • * Rinse it with warm water, dry it and voila!
  • * As with cart-iron skillets, a light coating of oil before storing protects it over time.
  • * This method works on both copper and silver.
  • * You can also clean your Soy with ashes (cigarette ash, fireplace ash, etc.).You can also always use food-safe silver polish.
  • * We recommend brands like Hagerty or Goddard's.
  • * Please watch our video on how to clean your Soy products:
