Kosuga Bamboo Nedake Cooking Chopsticks
Kosuga’s Bamboo Nedake Cooking Chopsticks are carved from individual sections of bamboo roots. While being longer and wider than typical eating chopsticks, these lightweight nedake chopsticks are designed more for serving food at the table or cooking. Each pair have unique bumps and joints that make it easier to grip food and hold in the hand, and adds a beautiful and natural appearance to any dining experience.
10.5" x 0.37''
Originating in Kyoto, Kohchosai Kosuga is a fifth-generation atelier that combines traditional bamboo shaping techniques and contemporary design concepts. The bamboo used in Kohchosai Kosuga products are of the Madake and Mousouchiku varieties. Carefully crafted by skilled hands using bamboo sourced from the mountains of Hyogo, Nara and Kyoto known for their incredibly strong and durable bamboo reeds. No preservatives or chemicals are used in the harvesting or making of these pieces and the procuring and drying of each bamboo piece is a long process. The bamboo is harvested between the cold winter months of November to February. When it gets warmer in March, the oil from the bamboo is removed through steaming in a special kiln. After that, it is hung to dry in the sun for over one month.
The organic nature of the Bamboo Nedake Cooking Chopsticks mean no two chopsticks are alike.
Hand-wash and dry immediately. Do not soak in water for long periods of time.
