Banko-ware Chasen holder made in Mie Prefecture of Japan. Essential tool for the longevity of your Chasen.
The Importance of the Chasen Holder
The Chasen holder is a simple but a very important tool which helps prolong the longevity of your Chasen. It has two essential functions.
1. One is that it helps maintain the shape of the Chasen. The Chasen's shape is naturally inclined to straighten out and become it's original straight bamboo form. Once this happens, it's difficult to spread the prongs and make it look like a Chasen again. The shape of the Chasen holder allows the Chasen to maintain the spread.
2. The second function is that it allows the Chasen to be rested upside down with the prongs facing down, right after its use. This allows the water and humidity to trickle down towards the end of the prongs and drop off and dry. More importantly, it keeps the water from trickling up towards the string of the Chasen. When this happens, it can build odor, which is very difficult to remove. The rule of thumb is to avoid the string of the Chasen from getting wet.
