- Glass chopsticks with red and black swirled ends.
time chopsticks have been made from virtually any material. Starting
with simple twigs, chopsticks were made of wood, bamboo, iron, silver,
steel, stone, ceramic, bone and ivory. As the millennia have passed,
chopsticks have progressed into artisan forms, combining natural
materials such as seashell, pine needles, eggshell, fabric and paper
embedded into multiple layers of lacquer to produce works of art. Other artisan forms of unique chopsticks are cloisonné, ceramic, carved stone such as jade, and inlaid woods.
Everything Chopsticks we are striving to introduce new forms of unique chopsticks
made of modern or unusual exotic materials. These include glass, carbon
fiber, colorful acrylic and exotic woods. Although we've carried all of
these from time to time, their hand-made production by local
craftspeople means their supply is limited.
chopsticks were one of our first forays into unique chopsticks. We
worked with several different glass workers and artisans until we found a
perfect match of high strength glass and decorative glass fused to make
glass chopsticks with textured tips and colorful decorated handles.
There were even matching glass chopstick rests. Unfortunately our glass
artisan retired and we haven't found a capable replacement. Cheers to
old Jim for living the peaceful retired life.
Carbon Fiber Chopsticks
fiber is a unique material. When polished it becomes slightly
translucent, showing the beautiful weave. Our carbon fiber chopsticks come from a small shop that specializes in carbon fiber art. Although expensive,
these are some truly awesome chopsticks.
a few years we've had chopsticks made for us using colorful swirled
acrylics, the kind used in making guitar tuner pegs. The availability of acrylic chopsticks is a bit sporadic so be sure to check them out when you see them as they are amazing. The colors are swirled with iridescent tones. We'll be
adding more colors and styles in the future.
chopsticks have been around since the first pair was ever conceived,
but we want to bring you unique wood chopsticks made of zebra, madrone,
myrtle, black oak, and birds-eye maple. We're experimenting with
semi-automating the process of cutting the chopstick blanks so that they
are precise and uniform in size and shape. Keep checking our website as
these wonderful wood chopsticks become available.
