Chopsticks have been the dining utensil of choice in China and several neighboring countries for thousands of years.
In China and Japan, most commonly used chopsticks are made of wood or bamboo, while in Korea, steel chopsticks are typical. Hard plastics and melamine are other low cost materials used for making chopsticks, while finer ones can be made of bone, ivory, porcelain or precious metals.
Jade Eagle offers chopstics made of bamboo, porcelain and poplar wood. Our bamboo chopsticks are sold in sets of 5 pairs in simple packing. The top parts are decorated with permanent decals in a variety of designs. The porcelain and wood chopsticks come in gift box sets of 5 pairs with 5 corresponding chopstick rests. The lower parts of the chopsticks (the parts towards the tips) are placed on the rests to create a table setting that keeps the tips that touch the diner's mouth from touching the table. In the wooden sets, different color pieces of wood with carved and imprinted designs are inlaid into the main body of the sticks and rests for additional ornamentation.
