Ipe Wok Chopsticks
Enjoy the beauty of our handcrafted exotic wood cooking wok sticks. This pair is made from Brazilian Walnut, commonly known as Ipe. The species is known as Handroanthus and grows in the tropical regions of Central and South America. It is one of the hardest and stiffest woods available with attributes including being bug, rot, heat and sun resistant. The workability tends to be difficult and can replace metal parts in certain applications when machined. However, its unique growing conditions doesn't allow for Ipe forests as it requires a high biodiversity to mature and thrive in the wild.
Each pair of cooking wok chopsticks are handcrafted from premium woods that are hand selected to be devoid of defects. Hand shaped using a horizontal belt sander, each stick is expertly made to have a matching taper from top to bottom. Finished with heat treated walnut oil that is FDA approved for everyone, waxed with a special blend, and hand polished for your enjoyment! The wood species is laser engraved on the skinny side of each chopstick for wood identification.
