    Mark I think you have a firm grasp on how to use chopsticks.

    The thinner taper especially at the ends is a better version. Great improvement.

    I think your chopsticks are fine. I will say that the important place to keep them narrow is where you grip them. People with small hands will find the thick midsections awkward. Thin tips are nice for picking up tiny things or piercing/cutting but larger, flatter tips are easier for gripping and especially for very soft objects. Personally, I find thicker tips to be closer to ideal.

    Looks like I will need to make them both ways.
    I seem to do a little better eating with the thicker tips like TK59 mentioned.
    But.....I will start making the middle portion a bit slimmer.
    This photo shows the regular and the thin tips next to each other.

    I have a couple dozen cut and rough shaped.
    Just have to catch up on my normal duties around here then back to making some more chopsticks.
    I have also set aside a bunch of small pieces to make chopstick rests.

    I prefer a more "Chinese inspired" chopstick, so the set you sent me from the first round is spot on. Having multiple designs clearly won't hurt anything though!
