  • Regular price $22.00

Chopsticks are one of the most used way of eating here in Japan! But they are now used worldwide! These cute chopsticks are based off of the katana that Shima Sakon used during his warring era. These chopsticks have a katana handle base and they also come with a kakedai (Japanese katana display stand) so you can display these finely made chopsticks for people to see them when you aren't using them to eat your meals!! But of course you don't have to use them if you're simply going to use them as decoration as a collector, which is also a great way to keep these chopsticks in top shape. We suggest that you hand wash these chopsticks after use as using a washing machine might damage these great chopsticks.
