These beautiful Wakasa lacquer chopsticks are made of ebony and designed with moon and rabbits. The top is coated with urethane, but the area that touches the mouth is made of natural lacquer.

Decorating the lacquer with abalone shells is a technique called "Kai-zogan" (shell inlay), one of the traditional techniques of Wakasa lacquerware. The nacreous layer of the abalone shell changes its expression depending on the angle of the light.

Ebony is characterized by its fine, heavy, and hard wood surface, and is known to become more lustrous the more it is polished. Because of these characteristics, ebony has been widely used as chopsticks, but due to the extremely slow growth of ebony and the effects of over-logging, ebony is now a rare species that is difficult to obtain. 

The square shape is neat and the ebony and shell inlay give it a luxurious feel, and it is recommended for special occasions such as inviting guests. We also recommend these chopsticks not only as a gift for a loved one. 

It is made by Ishida, which has been making Wakasa lacquerware for more than eighty years. Wakasa lacquerware is a traditional craft of Obama, Fukui Prefecture that has been around since the early Edo period. 

There are 6 different patterns in total, so you can choose your favorite one or use different patterns with your family.

Year of the Rabbit Hashis

The hashis are beautiful and elevate the act of eating to a more enjoyable experience! They remind me that I was born in the year of the Rabbit and to celebrate it every time I use them!

bunny chopsticks

Great experience shopping with Musubi Kiln, items were on pre order so I was anticipating a lengthy wait but they arrived very quickly! And everything was packaged impeccably - thank you. These chopsticks are so beautiful, the inlaid mother of pearl bunnies and sun details are so intricate and perfect, I'm incredibly happy and in love with them! Absolutely beautiful craftsmanship.
