The graceful Shizuku Wakasa Japanese Chopsticks have a nice 'leaves' mother of pearl inlay in the beautiful clear red gloss handles. The tips are natural wood. Dishwasher safe for easy care. A nice and tasteful style. These are too long to fit our chopstick boxes but do fit our long chopstick sleeve. The chopsticks have a base of Hard Maple (Acer saccharum), harvested in Canada. The handle is coated with a Urethane protective finish and the tip in natural Urushi lacquer finish. Chopsticks are 8.5 inches long with lightly textured tips. Hand made in Obama, Japan on the shores of Wakasa Bay.
