Between bites, it's not always easy to figure out what to do with your chopsticks. You could lay them down on a questionable surface like the table, or try and balance them on your bowl or plate. Gravity Chopsticks are self-elevating chopsticks that keep your eating tips sanitary and eliminate the need for chopstick rest. Each set is precision-machined from hardened aluminum alloy blocks with wood tips made from solid natural maple and walnut. Made in the U.S.A. with precise balance and well thought out design.
