Chasen 100 Hondate Check String Green – Kubo Komakichi
This 100 pronged Chasen has been hand made by Master Bamboo Whisk Craftsman Kubo Komakichi and features a unique check pattern string.
Sculpted from a single piece of white Hachiku bamboo that has air dried for around 3 years, this special utensil is ideal for creating an even and silky foam on the surface of your matcha tea.
It is designed for preparing Thin Tea (Usucha), as the large number of thin tines/prongs whisk the tea efficiently into a smooth and even consistency. However it is a suitable all purpose Chasen.
*Please note: as this is a natural product, colour & markings may differ slightly to the product pictured

This 100-hondate white bamboo chasen is far superior to the one it is replacing. Although I am not skilled at whipping up a decent froth on the surface of my matcha, I have come much closer with this whisk. The green-and-white string is in perfect harmony with my celadon tea bowl with its light-coloured flying cranes.

Kubo Komakichi is truly an artist & this chasen proves the point, each piece of bamboo is masterfully and carefully cut to precision to form something with exceptional beauty.
