Hi everyone! This post is more for the bento markers with niko niko punches...

I'm having a terrible time with my punches and I'm finding the nori paper won't punch
cleanly or it breaks as the piece come out :(
I've found folding the nori 3-4 times helps bit however, it's still a case of hit and miss...

So maybe its the nori paper... Which brings me to the next q...

Which nori brand do you believe works best with nori punches


rolling them over, one onigiri at a time.

Re: punch friendly nori brands

Well, I have never really seen any particular brand of nori recommended, even on Japanese bento blogs. What you can try to do is to look at the nori if it's in clear plastic packaging, and try to get one that is quite fine in texture. Also, it's easiest to cut nori that is neither too moist or too dried out, and is fairly fresh - old nori gets either too leathery or too crumbly. Hope that helps a bit!
