Extra Fine Chopsticks - Shu Men
Crafted from high-quality laminated wood, these chopsticks from Tanaka Hashiten offer both durability and a natural wood feel. Renowned for their resistance to water, wear, and tear, this material is commonly used in furniture and architecture, ensuring long-lasting use. Unique to these chopsticks is their ability to resist fraying, a common issue with regular wooden chopsticks, making them a reliable choice for daily use.
The chopsticks are polished with a plant-based wax, providing a natural sheen that highlights the wood's texture. Available in two elegant shades: Sumi, a serene dark brown echoing ebony, and Shu Men, a deep red reminiscent of rosewood, they are both 9.25" long, perfect for a variety of dining needs. Dishwasher-safe, these chopsticks blend traditional beauty with modern convenience.
