These chopsticks were designed and developed with the utmost care and dedication: it took more than four years until the first pair was finally perfected. The upper and lower parts are screwed together by a mechanism so finely tuned that the joint is almost invisible.
Usually, collapsible chopsticks are round, so as to ensure that the two parts fit when they are screwed together. However, by adding the magnetic function, Mr. Takeda managed to ensure that the two parts match perfectly each and every time; thus, he was the first craftsman to create collapsible chopsticks with edges, which is his speciality.
The Edokibashi magnetic chopsticks are surprisingly light and easy to carry around. They are available in three varieties: with five, seven, or eight edges.
As the they are made to be portable they are delivered with a practical black and white chopstick bag made of Aizu cotton.
