Wood Be Rough Chopsticks


Exotic Australian Wood Chopsticks - Pictured here are one each of Tasmanian Huon Pine, and Queensland Silky Oak, both with matching wood rests. Description: Rounded square, slightly flattened, and tapered, with matte natural finishes.

The Huon Pine (top) are beautifully minimalist with wide and soft contrast grain. Very lightweight, and a pleasure to hold. These trees, found only in Tasmania, can live for on the order of 2,000 years (Wood from naturally fallen trees is used, as Huon Pine is a protected variety). The Rest is a squared-off, but asymmetrical block of wood, with accents of burned edges. Length: 29 cm (Rest: 6 cm).

The Silky Oak (bottom) have a somewhat iridescent appearance, and an intricate but delicate grain. Both also include a small 'divot' near the end (which may be an intentional, if not unavoidable, integration of a 'knot'). The Rest is a darker color, and due to its size and freeform shape, shows the grain from different perspectives. Length: 27 cm (Rest: 5.5 cm).
