Coated with Traditional Korean Lacquer, Ottchil
[Notdam] Korean Ottchil Wooden Chopstick Set
We present to you a simple but elegant spoon and chopstick set that you can use everyday.
This chopstick and spoon set is made 100% from Korea's Bakdal Tree. The wood is firm, durable and perfect for use in utensils. Look closely and you'll see the natural streaks from the tree. The utensils are then lacquered with resin from a special tree called the Ott Tree.
Known as Ottchil, this technique of lacquering with Ott-tree sap has been used in Korea for thousands of years! This sap, which is thick and brownish in nature, makes woodcraft look shiny and slightly translucent. More importantly, it has outstanding durability which protects objects from decay and deformation for long periods of time. It also protects materials from water damage and has anti-microbial properties.
Notdam's wooden chopstick set is designed beautifully and built to last. If you eat Korean or Asian food regularly, considering add a set of wooden chopsticks to the mix!
I bought these before the crisis and I am so happy, I did. They are gorgeous, look great on my dining table. And they are perfect to use. I enjoy cooking Asian dishes, so they are so handy to eat with. They feel really balanced in my hand. And even my son sometimes use them! I'll definitely buy another set.
The only little thing I have is that one chopstick set looks a bit worn out but I don't really mind. It looks real.
so happy I got these! not only are they super functional and great quality, but they can easily be a beautiful addition to your kitchen decor, no matter what style! plus, you don't have to worry about them scratching up your dishes!
I am a big fan of Korean cuisine and frequently try out new recipes. This is how I came accross Future Neighbour and Gochujar. I immediatly fell in love with these wooden spoons and chopsticks so I had to have them. They came quite fast and were packed very nicely. Included was a little personal note from "the neighbours" whih I keep on my fridge ;-). The spoons and chopstick look really authentic with my dishes. The wood is smooth and strong, yet very light. I used to eat with metal chopsticks but these items serve to a completely new level of food enjoyment. If you love authentic Korean cusine, this is the gift for you!And this was just my firs shopping experience with Gochujar; I have already a long list of other items I'm going to order!
