The Shadow Play Triangular chopsticks have a subtle gloss and satin black checkered finish and dark wood tips. It is difficult to see in our photo. The handles are triangular shaped with rounded edges. A very pleasant elegant design. These chopsticks are too long to fit our chopstick boxes but do fit our long chopstick sleeve. The chopsticks have a base of Malas wood (Homalium tomentosum), harvested in Indonesia. They have a Polyester Urethane protective finish. Chopsticks are 9.25 inches long with naturally textured tips.
