The Amamaru Juju Wakasa Chopsticks have alternating layers of black and orange resin, then carved to reveal the incredible colors and design. The chopsticks are polished to a satin sheen. The Amamaru Juju chopsticks are dishwasher safe for easy care. These are too long to fit any of our chopstick boxes, however they do fit our long chopstick sleeve. The chopsticks have a base of Malas (Homalium tomentosum), harvested in Papua New Guinea. They have a Polyester Urethane protective finish. Chopsticks are 9.375 inches long with lightly textured tips. Hand made in Obama, Japan on the shores of Wakasa Bay.
