Sharing instrument

The culture of chopsticks that are common in the East Asian countries has been newly designed based on the result of research on the food culture of Korea, China and Japan. In the good culture that use only spoon and chopsticks, a matter of sanitation occurs when people share or put foods from a plate, which hinders sharing of warmth through foods. Thus, this new design using other chopsticks by way of sticking to one’s own chopsticks for distributing foods under the necessity has been made. Through this, user can suggest a new table manner with a concept of chopsticks for common use.
