Enjoy the beauty of our handcrafted exotic wood chopsticks. This pair is made from the Brazilian Purpleheart species known as Peltogyne that grows from Mexico to Southern Brazil. One of the most popular exotic woods due to its unique color of being purple, it also exhibits high strength and density, like most woods from the Amazon Basin. The workability tends to be poor as it heats up easily, exudes a gummy resin and dulls machine tools more than other exotic hardwoods in its class. When freshly worked, the wood is dull gray, but over time UV light will color-shift the wood to a deep eggplant purple.
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.
