With moderately thin chopstick tips and a triangle shape that fits comfortably in your hand, these chopsticks are very easy to use. They will not slip in your hand or roll around in the kitchen. The non-slip coating on the tips of the chopsticks makes it easy to grip slippery foods. In addition to use for cooking, they are also useful as chopsticks for serving platters of food.

Characteristic 1 of the chopsticks

BECOS Original! Functional Wakasa-nuri chopsticks

These chopsticks were developed as an original product by BECOS and Chopstick Store Matsukan, a brand of Wakasa-nuri, a traditional craft of Fukui Prefecture.

Dishwasher-safe vegetable chopsticks with special lacquer

Characteristic 2 of the chopsticks

Uses special lacquer! Dishwasher safe!

Special lacquer is used for these vegetable chopsticks. The lacquer is highly transparent and glossy, and the beautiful grain of the wood is faintly visible. Furthermore, the hardness of the surface and the very durable nature of the lacquer make it dishwasher-safe.

The chopsticks are made of bamboo, which does not conduct heat easily. They are light and easy to hold, and can be used for frying as well as stir-frying. Since the chopsticks are carefully designed to withstand high heat, they can be used for any kind of cooking.

Detail of the chopsticks1

Moderately thin chopstick tips and triangular shape that fits comfortably in the hand

The chopstick tips of the nabashi are moderately thin, making them suitable for detailed serving work. The non-slip coating on the tips of the chopsticks makes it easy to grip slippery foodstuffs, which is the secret of their usability.

The shape is triangular and fits comfortably in the fingers and palm of the hand without slipping in the hand. It does not roll around in the kitchen and reduces stress during cooking.

Vegetable chopsticks that also serve as chopsticks for removing large dishes

Detail of the chopsticks2

Works well as chopsticks for large dishes

The length of the chopsticks is 30 cm, which is a little shorter than the 35 cm chopsticks sold for deep frying to avoid splashing oil.

Of course, they can be used for cooking without shortage, but they are also useful as chopsticks to take a platter of food. It is useful to have more than one pair of chopsticks when you have guests over to share a meal.

A functional culinary companion brought to life on Kickstarter!

These beautiful natural wood "urushi" (lacquer) "saibashi" (cooking chopsticks) are made of a special lacquer called “MR urushi”, which makes them dishwasher-safe, despite being a completely natural material.

Made of lightweight, heat-resistant bamboo with a speckled tip for easy gripping, these cooking chopsticks are suitable not only for frying and stir-frying, but also for detailed work such as serving lunch boxes.

The saibashi were originally developed with support from backers on the crowdfunding platform Kickstarter, where 621 backers pre-ordered more than 1000 sets, which have since received very positive reviews.

The triangular shape of the chopsticks fits securely in your fingers and makes it difficult for them to roll around when placed on the cooking surface.

The 30 cm (11.8 in.) chopsticks are longer and thicker than standard chopsticks, helping you keep a safe distance between your hand and a hot pan and enabling you to pick up larger pieces of food while you cook or serve!

We hope you will use it in your kitchen every day.

    Great cooking tool, beautifully crafted

    The Saibashi are an example of a very simple idea being very useful. They're essentially extra large and extra robust chopsticks intended for cooking. They provide additional reach and allow for flipping larger items than regular chopsticks, great for turning over a whole steak or a fish fillet or whole vegetables.

    The Kickstarter project was exceptionally smooth, very well run and shipped right on schedule. The craftsmanship of the Saibashi is excellent, and they are very comfortable in use.

    I look forward to cooking with the Saibashi for a long time.
