    These Japanese chopsticks are elegantly crafted! Each chopstick is very labor intensive and can contain up to 50+ layers of lacquer. Wakasa nuri hashi - made in the Fukui prefecture, located along the coast of the Sea of Japan, since the Edo period. Craftsmen apply multiple layers of lacquer to each of these Japanese chopsticks, and depending on the style, may also incorporate small pieces of shell or mother of pearl to enhance the design. The final design of these Japanese chopsticks comes from how the lacquer coatings are carved in order to expose the layers. Carving can also determine the final shape of the lacquered chopstick. After carving the chopstick must be polished in order to bring out the beauty and colors of the lacquering. The Wakasa Daikan Japanese chopsticks are 9 inches in length with carving that creates indented scallops on 2 sides and creates vertical striping down the other 2 sides. Beautiful colors of black, red, gold and orange design. Made in Japan.

    Although I am no connoisseur of Japanese hashi, I do appreciate beautiful things. The Wakasa Daikan Japanese chopsticks fit the category with their wonderful layers of lacquer and exposed wood. The hashi sets are now on display in my home with a pair of hand made and painted rice bowls by Murata Tetsu of Kyoto.
