New Ganko Chopsticks 21cm (Dishwasher-safe), Yamachiku
Length: 22 cm
These chopsticks exhibit a taper from the thick handles to thin tips, making them beautiful to look at and comfortable to hold. These were developed in response to the demand for dishwasher-safe chopsticks. They are thick and sturdy yet lightweight.
In addition to the lightness and flexibility of bamboo, the Urushi lacquer finish also imparts a warm touch and a gentle feel on the mouth. Urushi is very durable and resistant to water and oil stains. With proper care, they will last for a very long time.
For half a century, Yamachiku has consistently made products that make the most of the bamboo material. The company exclusively makes chopsticks made from local bamboo harvested in the town of Nankan in Kumamoto prefecture. Loggers hew out the bamboo used for chopsticks from the surrounding mountains, and the company made chopsticks from purely Japanese bamboo.
In Japan, where resources are scarce, bamboo is an essential material from the point of view of effective use of resources and recycling.
