What is Ottchil (옷칠)?

Ottchil is a traditional Korean lacquer technique.

It uses the secretions of the Korean "Ott" tree.

Collecting, refining and applying this Ottchil sap is a nuanced and delicate process - requiring decades of experience to master.

At Chilmong, only sap from Wonju Ott Trees is used (as it contains the highest-quality sap).

When properly applied, Ottchil lacquer produces an incredibly durable finish on wood. 

The lacquered wood will not rot, discolor or deteriorate with extended use… or even when exposed to water.

(Typically, wooden utensils start to rot and discolor at the tips after a few months of rinsing. Rest assured, this will not.)

Furthermore, Ottchil also creates a natural 99.9% antibacterial surface!

This is why Ottchil has long been known as the best material for tableware in Korea.

Beautiful and Practical

These utensils are so beautifully made that I did not want to use them. I hope they last and, if they don't, I'll buy more because they are such a practical set to have!!!

Coated with Korea's Highest-Quality Ottchil Lacquer

The spoon and chopsticks are coated with 6 layers of Ottchil Sap (from Wonju Ottchil Trees)

 Wonju Ottchil Trees are known for producing the highest-quality sap for Ottchil lacquer

When the surface of Ottchil Trees are scratched, the tree releases sap

This sap is carefully collected and skillfully refined for use as lacquer

The coating process, in which layers of lacquer must be repeatedly applied and left to dry, requires great patience

Producing lacquerware is a notoriously prolonged and labor-intensive process, which has sometimes been called the “art of time”

Ottchil Sap is Harvested by Master Ahn Young Bae

Extracting Ottchil Sap requires decades of skillful experience and know-how

Chilmong's Ottchil Sap is extracted in Wonju by Master Ottchil Harvester, Ahn Young Bae (license shown above)

Why Wonju Ottchil?

Wonju Ottchil Trees contain the highest amounts of Urushiol, a natural oily compound

The higher the concentration of Urushiol, the higher the quality ↑

In one year, Wonju Trees produce only 80-120kg of Sap - limited supply makes it an expensive material

When lacquered with Wonju Ottchil, craft items can last for a lifetime, and acquire anti-bacterial properties

Ottchil Lacquered Items have a 99.9% Anti-Bacterial Surface

Chilmong Ottchil Cutlery can be helpful in guarding your health

Ottchil surfaces are 99.9% anti-bacterial - bacteria is unable to grow on them!

Futhermore, Ottchil is free of any heavy metals, carcinogens or environmental hormones (test results shown above)

Product Notice

Refrain from biting down on the chopsticks themselves - this may damage the ottchil coating

The tips of the chopsticks can wear down if dragged along rough surfaces (be wary of using in cast-iron)

Do not place for long periods in high heat

Do not apply excessive pressure or trauma to the chopsticks

How to Wash

- Do NOT use the hard side (green) of a kitchen sponge - use the soft-side instead!

- Do NOT soak the chopsticks in water for long periods of time. If there are food pieces stuck, soak it for 2-3 minutes, then wash-off with a soft sponge

- Do not boil chopsticks (to clean). Ottchil surfaces are already 99.9% anti-septic - no need to sterilize

- It's fine to rinse Ottchil chopsticks with just water (no soap needed)  - bacteria will not grow or spread on its surface
