Lacquer Chopsticks


Characterized by their slender form that tapers to a delicate, sharp point, these chopsticks are each individually handmade by artisans in Ishikawa prefecture.

They are available in a black and red lacquer, both of which are finished with an additional tin lacquer, creating a modern accent.
