The traditional bamboo whisk (also called Chasen) is made from Jin Bamboo(golden bamboo). This Chasen bristles won’t get twisted easily and is very durable to use. Our 100prongs Chase is completely hand-made by skillful craftsman and sure will whisk that perfect layer of velvety matcha cream.
A brand new Chasen will have a core that’s curled in, and tines that curl up at the end. After a few uses the tines will straighten out and the core will ‘bloom’. This is to be expected and is not a sign of wear.
