Sapele Chopsticks

Enjoy the beauty of our handcrafted exotic wood chopsticks. This pair is made from the African Sapele species known as Entandrophragma Cylindricum that grows in the tropical regions of Africa. Its interlocking grain structure and texture gives the wood a good natural luster, but also produces the optical illusion called chatoyancy, commonly known as cat’s eye effect that gives the surface the appearance of looking wet. Sapele has an unusually high strength given its low density; paired with it being widely available and relatively inexpensive, its popularity among woodworkers. Its color is a golden to dark reddish brown with a beautiful ripple pattern.

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.
