Chopsticks Design

Due to there are only two contact points between the common chopsticks and circular food, it slides easily when eating circular food. In this design, the part of chopsticks contacting with food is made with curved edges and corners, so there are four contact points. The possibility of sliding food is far less than the conventional tableware. Avoiding to dirty clothing, it also reduces the waste of food.
