    These black Japanese chopsticks are exquisite! 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 the black 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 come from how the lacquer coatings are carved in order to expose the layers. Carving can also determine the final shape of the chopstick. After carving the chopstick must be polished in order to bring out the beauty and colors of the lacquering. The Wakasa Yoshino Japanese chopsticks are 9 inches in length with beautiful designs in golds, reds and browns accented by mother of pearl on black. Made in Japan.
