Couldn't use these to eat if you paid me, but I can tell you they would make excellent drink stirrers ;- )
If you are into looks, these are killer. However, the cheap ones they give you at restaurants will perform exactly the same. Laquer coated ones last longer. They are my favorite. Avoid metal ones unless they are flattened. I hope this helped anyone buying chopsticks.
Carved by hand.
Can't say that's high on my list of dream jobs.
Never been a fan of Chinese-style chopsticks. Maybe I just need to improve my technique, but Japanese ones are a lot easier to use, imo. I even prefer stainless steel Korean ones to fat-tipped ones like these.

stainless steel ones are too slippery and heavy for my taste.
dahoo
Never had a problem with weight, but yes, they are typically pretty slippery. I'd still take them over Chinese ones, though.
I've seen some folks complain about these ( tikkytak and xraymind recently for example ). I ordered some and would be more than happy to give an unbiased take on them, and I'll even try to swing by a local asian grocery here in Charleston (we have a big one called H&L for anyone around these parts looking for one) and pick up some of the inexpensive ones to compare these KentWang ones against.
Utterly ridiculous, Staining? Bending? Expensive? "Shutup and take my money" is a meme not a life philosophy.
Go to an asian grocery and pick up similar chopsticks for under $5. Mine are over 5 years old and always go in the dishwasher. Out of all the ridiculous hipster crap they have in here I had to comment on this one as I know there is a better alternative.

Yea, the local Daiso(Japanese 100 Yen store) here in California sells a pack of 3 pairs for $1.50.
How do I find the Japanese version (shorter, more pointed tips)?>

These are beautiful, simple, elegant and inexpensive.
KentWang couple of my chopsticks started to bent which makes them very difficult to pick up food. is there any way to straighten them or get them replaced?

would being soaked in water for a prolonged period of time cause this as well since theres no lacquer finish?
DocZZZ
Soaking in water by itself shouldn't be a problem, but if you also have something heavy pressing on the chopsticks, that could cause warping. For example the chopsticks are at the bottom of your sink and you have heavy pots pressing down on top of them. This is true of all wooden utensils.
The photos can't properly convey how nice these chopsticks feel. The quality is just absurdly good and they're probably worth twice the asking price.
How do we take care of these to make sure they last? Do we need to treat them with wood oil and if so how often? Thanks!

and is normal extra strength dish detergent going to be too harsh? should we use a more sensitive dish soap to clean these?
reptile18
I wouldn't worry about any of that. Maybe some wood oil every year, if you like doing that kind of thing. I personally do no maintenance. My parents have ebony chopsticks over 30 years old that they've done no maintenance on and still look great.
So random... chopsticks? Stick to sunglasses lol
