Groove Chopstick / Chopstick

Groove Chopstick

Using chopsticks are very difficult to many people, especially, for children and those who frequently use of knives and forks. It’s also difficult for chopsticks users to hold noodles, meatballs and eggs. As such, an improved design of quadrangular chopsticks is proposed. One of four planes of chopsticks is extruded some space to form an indention that can increase resistance and friction between chopsticks and food. The indented design will help hold spherical food, while both indentions turn outwards will make chopsticks return to the original use. The user can also use single indention of one chopstick to hold flat type of food.
