Playing on the term "kattobase" which means "making a big hit" in Japanese, Kattobashi chopsticks are recycled from broken baseball bats. These collectible items have team names and logos printed on them, allowing fans to show a little more support while being eco-friendly. In addition, this concept helps reduce the usage of disposable wooden chopsticks, which is also healthy for the environment.
