These are some of the most highly handcrafted Japanese chopsticks. We have not been able to get these handmade lacquered Wakasa chopsticks in the US for several years but for a short while here they are again. About 20 layers of real lacquer made from the
Sumac tree (not modern petroleum lacquer) are used. Each layer is
applied and then almost sanded bare to make a fine finish. Then the next
layer and so forth until the exquisite finish is achieved. This process
takes about 2 months. A rare and truly wonderful piece of handmade art.
