These look better in real life

More than any other chopstick I've handled, these look far better in person than they do in the photographs. The colors are brighter and more vivid, and the surface of the handles have a slight cloth-like tactile effect. Overall these make me think of the timeless and the exclusive. Very classy.

The narrow tips are a key part of the aesthetic, but one does have to get used to them in comparison with a continually tapered chopstick, though there is no practical reduction in utility. The tips are textured and quite grippy. The handle is constructed with a wrap of cloth or paper, lacquered over, so there is continuous seam up one side.
