Want to eat like a Samurai warrior? This is how you do it: the Samurai Sword Chopsticks.
Made to “dispatch sushi with honor,” the chopsticks are clad in actual 17th century Samurai sword design. It’s perfect for waging hand-to-mouth battles with soy sauce and wasabi, dunking fish eyeball sushi till you’re sick of swallowing them sliced-up, slimy sea creatures.
The Samurai Sword Chopsticks are available in three designs, namely Date Masamune, Sanada Yukimura and Maeda Keiji. They all use the same 230 mm chopstick frame, varying only on the details clad across their “sword handles.” All three, by the way, are monikered after legendary samurai warriors from years past, who would probably slay whoever bastardized their names for use with chopsticks if they were alive today. Banzai!!!!!
Japanese food is fun but you’ll have to put a gun to my head to make me eat raw fish wrapped in steamed rice. And don’t even get me started on the stink of wasabi. I’ll take red, hot chili peppers any day of the week, please.
Of course, if you want to eat like a real Samurai warrior from medieval Japan, you can’t go halfway. You’ll have to eat their standard meals too – which, as far as my inaccurate history books tell me, consist of rice, koi fish sushi, dragon butter and the blood of fallen assassins. Make sure to get all the ingredients right and you’ll be slaying evil ninjas in no time too. The Samurai Sword Chopsticks cost ¥7,500.00 apiece.
