Modeled after actual famous blades

Sure, purchasing chopsticks shaped like samurai swords is a no brainer. But what makes these even more priceless is that they’re imported from Japan, not some Sri Lankan sweatshop (I like my novelty toys to be as authentic as possible). Second, the swords are actual reproductions of real blades, famous swords from feudal Japan — the handles are modeled after samurai swords from legendary generals like Maeda Toshimasu, the military tactician Sanada Yukimura (aka the “crimson demon of war”) and Date Masamune “the one-eyed dragon”. It’s science — yellowtail sashimi just tastes better when eaten with samuria blade chopsticks. Pick them up at Thinkgeek for $13 a package.
