Bamboo whisk made shirotake (white bamboo) with red strings. This chasen is recommended for special occasions and celebrations. Its shape is Senke-gata (or “Senke shape”) – the most common shape with straight prongs with curled tips.
In Japan, red is considered a lucky color, and people use it for many celebrating occasions. One such popular occasion is Kanreki (還暦) which celebrates turning the age of 60 and one wears a red outfit for the celebration.
This chasen is crafted by Komakichi Kubo and his family. Please note that each item is exquisitely hand-crafted and unique so the shipped pieces may not exactly match the photo. This item comes in an original paper box from Komakichi.
