    Thanks for the help,

    I buy all of mine from Korin, I would start looking there.

    GlassEye,

    I have been looking at Korin, but they don't seem to post many details about the woods or anything. May I ask what particular chopsticks you buy from Korin?

    Thanks,
    Julian

    I typically just use some cheap bamboo chopsticks since I have them, but these look decent:http://korin.com/Iron-Wood-Chopstick...ategory=281366
    I use these saibashi almost every time I cook, have a bundle of spares just in case: http://korin.com/Saibashi_Cooking_Ch...ategory=281240

    For a few dollars you could try out several different chopsticks, then buy more of those that you like.

    After looking through those websites, I think I am going to "stick" with the Ironwood ones from Korin.

    Thanks for all of the help everyone!

    Crazy. I grew up using cheap bamboo sticks. Perfect "grip" on the food item. You can brutalize them during cooking. I never knew there were upscale versions with other wood. Pretty cool!

    Julian, you could probably find some decent ones at your local Asian market.
