The best way to preserve the shape and life of your matcha whisk (chasen) is by using a whisk stand. The ergonomic shaping of the stand helps the chasen retail its shape and its performance.
A matcha whisk should never be stored with the bristles (strings) facing downward in direct contact with surface it is being rested on. This can damage the strings and shorten the life of your whisk.
Pair this Kusenaoshi with a Chasen (bamboo whisk) and a Chashaku (bamboo scoop) to create a complete matcha accessory set for the matcha lover in your life.
