If you’ve mastered the art of eating with chopsticks and have deep respect for the Samurai way, you might be worthy of owning a pair of Samurai Sword Chopsticks.
When using such beautiful, delicately-crafted utensils, here are some helpful tidbits so as to not disgrace the Japanese culture: 1.) Always hold chopsticks at the broader ends, not in the middle or lower, skinny ends. 2.) Don’t point with them or play with them. 3.) Do not stab food, but rather scoop or gently secure food and lift.
Now you’re ready to enjoy sushi, udon, gyoza, donburi, tempura, edamame and more at your favorite Japanese eatery, while exhibiting style, class and skill.
Three sets of plastic chopsticks are available, honoring legendary warriors Matsamune Date (black samurai swords with intricate gold detail), Keiji Maeda (red handles with gold detail), and Yukimura Sanada (mostly black with 5 gold dots). Each set comes with a clear chopstick rest, adorned with the respective samurai’s crest in a regal gold shade.
Form a special samurai alliance with your closest friends and vow to only use these chopsticks when dining in one another’s company.

- Each pair of chopsticks comes with individual transparent chopstick-holder
- Choose from Masamune Date, Yukimura Sanada or Keiji Maeda, or all three
