Nowadays, Japanese foods (和食 Wa-Shoku) are widely well known and popular among people in the world. Fine Japanese Kitchen Knives are very important tool for professional Japanese food chefs, however there are some other important tools to help prepare and embellish Japanese dishes.
Since we started to introduce Japan’s fine kitchen knives, we often have received inquiries for quality Moribashi.
These are our recommendation of Moribashi with Blackpakka wood handle.
Among professional Japanese food chefs, Moribashi is a necessary tool to dishing up Sashimi, vegetables etc. for visual art. You will often enjoy the beauty of decorative fine Japanese cuisine at Japanese restaurants. The Moribashi is helpful and the must-have tool as well as Japanese kitchen knives for all professional Japanese food chefs.
We hope you will enjoy fine Japanese knives for cooking your special Japanese foods and now quality Japanese Moribashi are also available for JCK Customers.

Being Western getting to use these chopsticks for plating can be somewhat time-consuming and frustrating. However stick with it. When plating we tend to use tweezers, and they do the job effectively but with the Moribashi you actually have a greater reach and more control. It is the fineness behind this technique that controls the amount of micro herbs etc. being used and less is definitely more in these ‘minimal’ days. Also a prettier picture can be created instead of just the usual ‘pile’ of petals. But be warned practice makes perfect.
Moribashi are nicely made. I bought 180mm and they are exactly the length I needed: I would not be able to handle 210mm properly (as a side note, the length specified is from brass collar to the tip, not to the handle and not full length of course)
Great purchase! This is one that I have been meaning to get as I've never used one before. I'm still getting used with handling the moribashi, especially with finding the weight balance. But it's an excellent item and great to add to my kitchen collection!
It should be noted that the indicated size is the length of the metal part only. The wooden part adds another 14 cm. to the overall length. I wasn't aware of that at the time of purchase and ended up with a huge 14" chopsticks that's too unwieldy to use with one hand. Otherwise, it is a good solid product and I will definitely buy again (in the correct size next time).
