About Rikyu Chopsticks (Heptagon)
The streamline is beautiful
so when you take the chopsticks you feel your hand more beautiful.
Chopsticks grasp by three fingers that is odd number,
so Heptagon(7 angles) is best fit angles to grasp chopsticks!
These chopsticks shaves Heptagon from bottom to 1mm(0.03inches) of tip point.
And bottom shaves thin than hand grip point so it's makes beautiful body line.
An expensive knife breaks just used it several times for Hard Wood.
