U-sticks / eating utensils


Chopsticks are useful eating utensils which can be used for almost every kind of food. However, the use of chopsticks is still a challenge for some people. U-sticks take advantage of the flexible nature of bamboo, making it possible to connect the two main parts of a set of chopsticks while maintaining their traditional appearance. Just lightly press both sides with your fingers, and you can easily pick up your food. U-sticks make dining more relaxing and easier and are suitable for physically challenged people. Furthermore, you’ll never need to worry about losing one half of your chopsticks. Bon appetit!
