Formal bamboo whisk made from shirotake (white bamboo) for the Urasenke school (裏千家). The prongs are straight in the middle and curled at the end, which is called Senke-gata (or “Senke shape”). The tips of the prongs are shaved thin, so they curl easily. This shape makes a rich foam when you whisk matcha. This is the most common chasen style widely used in the tea ceremony.
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.

Recommended: Before every use, please soak the prongs in warm water for 5 minutes to soften the tips.
