These natural wood chopsticks have an octagonal handle and a non-slip lacquer finish for a better grip. The square tip makes it easier to grip many foods, unlike chopsticks with round tips that are not suitable for slippery foods such as udon noodles.

– After use, wash with hot or cold water and wipe with a soft cloth.
– Keep out of direct sunlight to avoid discoloration.

About Kawakami Shoten
Registered in 1952, the company has actually existed under a different name since 1905: Senkichi Kawakami, the founder, honed his skills as a craftsman in a certain chopstick shop in Tokyo, before becoming independent under the name ‘Sen’. From the beginning, the company focused on the production of wooden chopsticks, and even after the war, when cheaper and easier to make plastic chopsticks became popular, Kawakami Shoten sought to make wooden chopsticks easier to use, without making concessions. This spirit is still present in today’s shop, which offers wooden chopsticks that are ergonomic and suitable for all shapes of Japanese cooking.
