Ebony chopsticks

In stock
Sustainably harvested ebony. Ebony is a slow-growing, tropical wood with a natural black color. One of the densest woods, it sinks in water.

Chinese style, with square handle and round, non-tapering tip. No lacquer, for superior grip.

Each chopstick is hand carved, so there will be slight variation in shape.

In use at Benu, a 3 Michelin star restaurant in San Francisco.

As with all wooden utensils, hand wash only. The high heat of a dishwasher may cause warping over time.

Sold as a pair. If you buy 1, you will get 1 pair = 2 chopsticks. Minimum order of 2 pairs.

Why does a menswear shop sell chopsticks?

I enjoy eating Asian food, and it's hard to find quality chopsticks. I set out on a quest to find the best chopsticks, and why not offer them to my customers too?

My parents have a set of ebony chopsticks that they received as a wedding gift, which are now over 40 years old. I grew up using those chopsticks and my parents still use them everyday. Forty years ago, this kind of craftsmanship was common in China, but now sadly, is rare. Working with one of the last workshops engaged in hand carving ebony, I designed these chopsticks after my family's set.

As with all wooden utensils, hand wash only. The high heat of a dishwasher may cause warping. It takes less than 30 seconds to wash by hand, so this shouldn't be a burden. Do not soak in water for longer than 10 minutes, as this may cause warping.

No oils or additional care needed. My family has a set of ebony chopsticks that have been used everyday for over 40 years that still look great.
