Enjoy the beauty of our handcrafted exotic wood chopsticks. This pair is made from the Brazilian Jatoba species known as Hymenaea Courbaril that grows in South America. As most exotic woods from the Brazil Amazon basin, it is exceptionally strong, stiff and dense, but it holds the title as one of the strongest woods in tensile strength in our collection; only behind Ipe and African Blackwood. Its color tends to be a medium reddish brown and darkens slowly over time. Jatoba is widely named ‘Brazilian Cherry’ as its natural color mimics century old American Cherry.
Each pair of chopsticks are handcrafted from premium exotic 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 Japanese 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.
