They are veyr nice looking though.. but I have several sets of Thai

made of different blends of laminated hardwood.

I bought my daily use chopsticks in Tokyo in 1987; ¥5,000 and well worth
every ¥en. Just beginning to show some wear on the tips. It pays not to
scrimp when it comes to chopsticks. I have a "his and her" set I bought
back in 1980 - never used. Made out of small branches with a gorgeous
finish . . . on the large end, you can see the growth rings of the twig.
Beautiful workmanship. I never use these.
