K-Ribbon Award Winner, Premium Collection
[Chilmong] Ultra Premium Wave Ottchil Chopstick Set
This is one of Chilmong's ultra-premium collections.
The mesmerizing waves that roll over the chopsticks are inspired by Korea's natural coastline - the water reflect different colors over the four seasons.
This ultra-premium, Korean chopstick & spoon is masterfully carved, then coated with 9 layers of Ottchil (as opposed to 5 layers in their standard collection).
But, what is Ottchil?
Ottchil is a type of traditional Korean lacquer.
It's made from the secretions of the Korean Ott tree. Chilmong only uses sap from premium-grade Ott trees grown in Wonju (Gangwon Province).
Collecting, refining and applying this lacquer is a very nuanced process - which takes decades of experience to master.
For its premium collection, Chilmong uses a concentrated lacquer that contains more Ottchil sap (83.4% to be exact) than standard Ottchil.
Afterwards, each utensil is vigorously rubbed by hand (with an abrasive sponge) over three hundred times in a laborious 3-step process. This process is what produces Ottchil's beautiful glossy sheen.
The natural sheen marks premium craftsmanship and quality.
The Ottchil coating also creates a natural 99.9% antibacterial surface.
This is why Ottchil has long been treated as the best material for tableware in Korean history.
Select from 5 colors: Strong Red Wave, Sunset Yellow Wave, Deep Green Wave, Healing Blue Wave, Majestic Purple Wave
Note: This premium collection is presented in a magnetic case box - great for a fancy gift.

Usage Notes & Cleaning
Don't use steel sponges or the green scourge side of 3M kitchen scrubs.
Instead, use the soft yellow sponge side of 3M sponges (or other soft cloth)
Don't soak the utensils in water for an extended period of time.
If leftover rice or foods gets crusted on spoon, soak in warm water for 2-3 minutes.
The Ottchil layers keeps the utensils 99.9% sterile (do not boil to sterilize)
After washing, make sure to dry off with a towel before storing.
No, that's the benefit of Ottchil lacquer. The wood - even with repeated washing - will not rot or discolor.
