Matcha Whisk (Chasen) - 100-tip
Putting it in the case before it is completely dry can cause it to become moldy. It is recommended to use a Whisk Stand (Chasen Tate) to preserve durability. When making matcha, be careful not to use too much force and scrape the bottom of the cup with the tips because this will cause them to bend or break.
Tradition has it that a high-quality chasen can last long enough to make over one hundred cups of matcha. If used properly, this chasen is more than durable enough to last that long. Nevertheless, because it is a consumable item, we recommend that you replace it once the tips begin to thin out.
80-tip vs. 100-tip
The difference between the two types of chasen -- the 80-tip and 100-tip -- lies in the number of tips and the thickness of the bamboo. The 80-tip chasen is recommended for people who prefer a thin handle and those used to making matcha.

I think this whisk is great and does its job however 2 weeks after I started using it the bamboo is falling apart. I’ve only washed this by hand and taken extra care keep it in good condition. But hopefully it lasts me longer than 1 year.
Thank you for your review! When making matcha, be careful not to use too much force and scrape the bottom of the cup with the tips because this will cause them to bend or break.
We hope this advice helps you keep your whisk intact longer.
Not too much to say! Great craftsmanship. Looks better in person than in the photos. Definitely recommend it!
