I ordered these clothes pin-style chopsticks last week from Ebay. They should be coming soon. What type do you have?
Mine are similar to those in SS's first photo. I don't do very well with them. I bet I'd be an ace with Shermie's, LOL!
We have some that are similar to that we bought for Amelia to get started on. She uses normal chop sticks now. I bought a large package of chop sticks at Boo Han Market and use them normally. We have fancy enameled and painted sticks, and Nancy and I travel chop sticks that unscrew in the middle like a pool cue and have a nice lanyard case to wear them around your neck. We got those at REI when we were camping in Canada every year.
