Someone recently asked for a good place to buy chopsticks. I just wanted to
say I recently had a very good experience with EverythingChopsticks.com (
http://www.everythingchopsticks.com/ ). I ended up speaking with them over
the phone, and they were very friendly and professional. Just my 2 cents!
None of the chopsticks on the site, especially the Japanese ones, had the rough
area near the tip. My brother-in-law bought us two sets of Japanese chopsticks
during a trip that have this, and it makes picking up the slippery stuff a lot
They are veyr nice looking though.. but I have several sets of Thai chopsticks
made of different blends of laminated hardwood.
