Enjoy the beauty of our handcrafted exotic wood chopsticks. This pair is made from the African Red Padauk species known as Pterocarpus Soyauxii that grows in the central and tropical regions of West Africa. Its straight grain, open texture, good natural luster, easy workability, fairly accessible and relatively inexpensive makes it one of the most popular exotic woods on the market. It is one of the few woods to have a very pleasant fragrance when being worked. Its color when freshly cut is a vibrate bright red, but over time it will patina with age into a deep reddish-brown from oxidation.
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.
