Rikyubashi Wood Chopsticks

Named after 16th century Japanese tea master Sen no Rikyu, these sleek chopsticks include slightly tapered tips to fit comfortably in your hand. Rikyubashi Lacquered Chopsticks are a traditional handicraft from the rural Ishikawa Prefecture in Japan. ​Due to the natural wood and lacquer, the color, shape and size of each set will be slightly different. 
The modern Japanese tea ceremony has largely been shaped by Sen no Rikyu's influence. Prior to serving tea, this celebrated tea master would serve guests a small meal accompanied by hand-carved chopsticks. The aroma of the freshly carved Japanese cedar brought a new dimension to the tea experience.
