PingMag – The Tokyo-based magazine about “Design and Making Things”: Portable Chopstick Designs
Statistically about 30% of the population on the planet now use them. I think chopsticks are a great invention to pick up even the smallest bits of food, to divide bigger into smaller pieces and – what many say here in Japan – the food actually tastes better with non-metallic cutlery! Sometimes I use them even for eating pasta…

All about chopsticks. How much metal is in our system because we eat with cutlery? Silver might be good for you, stainless steel should be harmless, but what about different alloys?
