Easy-chopstick / Chopstick


Disposable chopsticks are being used very often everywhere. Classically, the chopsticks are made by die-cutting a stick of wood to create 2 chopsticks which can be pulled apart by the consumer.
We are used to using them and don't mind when the chipsticks aren't separated well.
Somtimes it makes uncomfortable to use. But this three piece chopsticks supplements its disadvantage by ready-cutting. The main one can be used as a chopstick rest. This little chopstick rest can keep chopstick tips off the table and to prevent used chopsticks from contaminating or rolling off tables.
