The matte gloss is elegant! Red and black colors add a touch of color.
The surface is smooth and even, but the chopsticks themselves have a matte texture rather than a shiny shine. The luster that exudes from the inside is the beauty of the lacquer coating. The deep color produced by the layers of lacquering also conveys the high quality of the product.
The color of the chopstick body is the same for both men and women, but only the cross section of the chopstick head is painted black for men and red for women. It would be difficult to tell the difference if they were exactly the same, but it is very convenient to be able to tell which chopsticks are which just by looking at the tops.
