[Nothyang] Traditional Korean Brass Chopstick Set (Classic Design)


Yugi - aka Korean brassware - is back in vogue.

Traditionally, every household in Korea owned a complete set of brassware. From tableware to cutlery, brass was the聽material of choice for its superb quality, beautiful luster and delicacy.聽In the old days, Koreans used聽porcelain bowls during the summer to add lightness and freshness to the table. But during the winter,聽it聽was swapped out with brassware. It's shiny, golden color makes food look more appetizing. And it retains heat better - preventing foods from getting cold.

After the Korean war, the era of consumer plastic聽ushered in and the majority of brassware聽factories went bankrupt. The few that survived kept the craft alive and still produce brassware in the traditional way.聽

Nothyang is famous for its modern聽take on traditional Korean Yugi.

Today, we feature their beautifully designed Classic spoon and chopstick set.

Both utensils are made from the traditional bangjja method - which involves heating lumps of brass and beating them with hammers. Bangjja brassware聽is also made with precisely 78% Copper and 22% Tin. This ratio creates a type of brassware that is strong and does not bend or break easily. You'll notice the premium quality聽once聽it's in your hands.

Nothyang was聽distinguished as聽the #1 Top Winner in "2020 Korea Best Brands" for Yugi Brassware. They are a premium Yugi brand from Korea and their products have even featured in mega-hit Korean Netflix/TV series like Itaewon Class, Private Lives (靷儩頇) and 2 Days & 1 Night (2氚1鞚).

If you're interested in traditional Korean tableware, start with this! It also makes for a beautiful, memorable gift!

PRODUCT NOTICE (READ)

1. Each piece is handmade - not identical

Nothyang makes their Yugi piece by hand (i.e. not bulk made in large-scale factories). 

As a result, there may be subtle differences in size and look (i.e. minor scratches/blemishes/stains).

Note: These minor imperfections do not qualify as "damaged' item.

2. DOn't use stainless steel scrubbers/wool

Instead, use the regular 3M Dishwashing Sponges (use the dark-green, coarse side)

3. SOAK IN VINEGAR BEFORE FIRST USE!

Before first use, soak the Yugi ware in lukewarm water - with a touch of vinegar.

How much? Use a ratio of 2 Cups Water to 1 Tablespoon Vinegar.

Soak for 30 mins - 1 hour (not any longer - set a timer).

Then rinse it off again with soap & water. Then dry-off thoroughly with a towel.
