(Japanese)Nihonto-Bashi Date Masamune, Sanada Yukimura, Maeda Keiji - KOTOBUKIYA

"Nihonto-Bashi(Japanese Sword Chopsticks)" lineups will be released in May, 2010. Featuring popular samurai Date Masamune, Sanada Yukimura and Maeda Keiji. 1,050 yen (about $11) for each pair. Now available for pre-order online.

23cm long. This pair is themed on Date Masamune.

Tsuba(sword guard) is sized and placed not to interfere with the chopsticks motion.

Beautifully detailed.

Maeda Keiji version.

Red and gold hilt. Maeda Keiji was known to be rather flashy and extravagant.

Sanada Yukimura.

Chic. With dragon relief on the guard.

Each comes with a chopstick rest with the samurai's family crest. From left to right: Date Masamune's Bamboo and Sparrow crest, Maeda's Ume (plum blossom) crest, Sanada's Six Coin crest.

By the way, the Lightsaber Chopsticks sold out last year in many stores but they're still available online in Japan.
