Moribashi Plating Chopsticks Bloodwood
Moribashi are long chopsticks, with a tip made of Stainless Steel. They are popular among Japanese Professional Chefs, used for preparing and serving Japanese Cuisine, such as Tempura, Sashimi etc. or turning food on the stove. They are not generally designed for eating. These chopsticks allow handling of hot food with one hand, and are used like regular chopsticks.
Professionals usually prefer Metal Tip rather than Wooden or Bamboo’s, as the tips of regular bamboo chopsticks discolour and get greasy after repeated use in hot oil. It is also much more hygienic. The wooden handle protects against heat.
The first thing you will notice about these is the weight, quality and balance they have.
