    chopsticks

    Does anyone know where I can buy a nice pair of chopsticks?

    Bit embarrassed to admit that as a Chinese people, my chopstick skills are rubbish so I want to improve.

    I thought a nice pair of chopsticks would encourage me to use it more

    looking at any exotic woods like ebony or even bones/silver, etc

    Thanks

    Handmade and very nice: http://www.japanchopsticks.com/. I'm Chinese and I used to hold chopsticks in a non-standard way until college where I ironically learned how to hold it correctly from a Japanese roommate. It's really not that hard once you decide to do it right and the proper form does have some advantage in how well you can grip food.

    Chopstick designs differ across asia. Most i see around here are chinese, thai and vietnamese. I see a few japanese but only in Toronto.

    Point being, length, shape, texture can differ so it might help you if you knew what you preferred.

    The best chopstix imo to learn to use are Korean...metal and very slender...if you can use them then you can use any fairly well...coming from a non-Asian
