5.00 stars, based on 2 reviews
These black Japanese chopsticks are exquisite! Each chopstick is very labor intensive and can contain up to 50+ layers of lacquer. Wakasa nuri hashi - made in the Fukui prefecture, located along the coast of the Sea of Japan, since the Edo period....

Over the past several years, I have tried a multitude of chopsticks yearning for that perfect "feeling" when using them. However, many of them tend to be too thin, making it difficult to hold them for long periods of time. My long-time friend Megumi in Tokyo suggested that I use Wakasa style chopsticks, as they are easiest for her to use and the multiple coatings of lacquer with embedded parts of shells make it easier to grip. After ordering two pairs of this style, I have to agree with her. This particular version is the one I carry around all the time, keeping a pair in the glove compartment for those moments when you want to satisfy your craving for Asian food with on the road. The quality and craftsmanship is second-to-none with this Wakasa Yoshino style.
