Samurai sword chopsticks modeled after the unusually long sword of Kojiro Sasaki, referred to as "The Laundry-Drying Pole." As such, these chopsticks are 9-7/8 inches long, longer than the typical 9 inches. History says Sasaki fended off three opponents, was chief wepons master of the Hosokawa fief north of Kyushu, and was defeated by long-time rival Miyamoto Musashi. Set includes a display stand for these unusually handsome gold chopsticks. Made in China.
