[Chilmong] Premium Ottchil Chopstick Set - Wave Collection


Introducing one of Chilmong's finest chopstick collections, The Wave Collection.

Inspired by Korea's Eastern Coastline, this collection captures the breathtaking dusk scene when the sun's last rays glisten on the waves, showcasing a vibrant array of colors.

Each set in this premium collection includes a spoon and a pair of chopsticks. What sets this collection apart is the meticulous craftsmanship.

Every piece is meticulously lacquered with 15 layers of Premium* Korean Ottchil, surpassing the regular 9-layer coating.

*Attention: This top-tier set of chopsticks features an ottchil coating infused with a significant amount of premium Wonju Ottchil, boasting a concentration of 70%. In contrast, our regular chopstick set is coated with Ottchil containing just 10% Wonju Ottchil.

To achieve a radiant sheen, the artisan diligently rubs the utensils by hand, using an abrasive sponge, after every three coatings. This process is repeated three times, resulting in a glossy finish that can be seen in the product images below.

Ottchil is more than just a coating; it's a form of living and functional art.

Through Ottchil, wooden items become exceptionally durable, impervious to rot and deterioration. Furthermore, Ottchil imparts an antibacterial surface, preventing the growth and spread of bacteria.

The premier chopstick collection is available in five captivating colors: Strong Red Wave, Sunset Yellow Wave, Deep Green Wave, Healing Blue Wave, and Majestic Purple Wave. Each set is elegantly presented in a sturdy, magnetic case, adding a touch of luxury.

(Note: Product images below showcase the stunning glossy sheen of the chopsticks in this collection.)

Coated with Korea's Highest-Quality Ottchil Lacquer

The spoon and chopsticks are coated with 9 layers of Ottchil Sap (from Wonju Ottchil Trees)

 Wonju Ottchil Trees are known for producing the highest-quality sap for Ottchil lacquer

When the surface of Ottchil Trees are scratched, the tree releases sap

This sap is carefully collected and skillfully refined for use as lacquer

The coating process, in which layers of lacquer must be repeatedly applied and left to dry, requires great patience

Producing lacquerware is a notoriously prolonged and labor-intensive process, which has sometimes been called the ‚Äúart of time‚ÄĚ

15 Layers of Premium Ottchil Lacquer

Each piece in this premier collection is skillfully coated with 9 layers of Ottchil

In certain areas of the cutlery, additional 6 layers are applied for extra durability

Ottchil Sap is Harvested by Master Ahn Young Bae

Extracting Ottchil Sap requires decades of skillful experience and know-how

Why Wonju Ottchil?

Wonju Ottchil Trees contain the highest amounts of Urushiol, a natural oily compound

The higher the concentration of Urushiol, the higher the quality ‚ÜĎ

In one year, Wonju Trees produce only 80-120kg of Sap - limited supply makes it an expensive material

When lacquered with Wonju Ottchil, craft items can last for a lifetime, and acquire anti-bacterial properties

Ottchil Lacquered Items have a 99.9% Anti-Bacterial Surface

Chilmong Ottchil Cutlery can be helpful in guarding your health

Ottchil surfaces are 99.9% anti-bacterial - bacteria is unable to grow on them!

Futhermore, Ottchil is free of any heavy metals, carcinogens or environmental hormones (test results shown above)
