If you were looking for the definitive instructional video on how to properly use chopsticks, then look no further. At least The Japanese Tradition is somewhat educational for the first few minutes — until the video takes a bizarre turn and starts following standard Japanese protocol, i.e. bat-shit-craziness. Please enjoy.
For when you need to dig into some lo mein or sushi as quickly as possible, there’s The Chopsticks Holster. Vanguard Armament — who actually creates some pretty badass weapon holsters — offers this convenient ‘tactical holster for tactical chopsticks.’ We weren’t aware that ramen was so hostile.
Utensil hybrids appear to be all the rage lately, and it’s no longer limited to some odd commingling of the knife, fork and spoon. After chopsticks got in on the act with the Kung Foon, the latest hybrid that we could find has them joining forces with the spoon. Enter the spoonplus.
But more than just the pinching abilities of chopsticks mixed with the scooping properties of a standard spoon — the spoon part detaches to become an instant dipping tray. Now we just need chopsticks mixed with a knife and spork, and we’ll consider this matter closed.
Just when the utensil mash-ups appeared to have reached their apex, we get The Kung Foon. An East meets West fusion of cutlery, The Kung Foon combines the food-stabbing and scooping features of a spork with the clenching features of chopsticks.
So if you ever go camping and need to keep it real when you eat your sushi in the woods, or simply enjoy a plethora of eating options on take-out night — consider the titanium spork with accompanying chopstick handle. Kung Foon!!
Keep yourself protected on take-out night with Nunchops. Chained together like the deadly nunchaku, you can use the chopsticks to give a good old whack to anyone who tries to sneak a spring roll from your plate. Just try not to bop yourself in the head.
Unless you’re a white belt in the culinary arts, then perhaps Chopstick Kids are more your speed.
