    FACTS & HISTORY: Chopsticks (Chinese: 筷子 or Chinese: 箸) are shaped pairs of equal-length sticks of Chinese origin that have been used as kitchen and eating utensils in most of East and Southeast Asia for over three millennia. They are held in the dominant hand, secured by fingers, and wielded as extensions of the hand, to pick up food.

    First used by the Chinese, chopsticks later spread throughout Greater China's peripheral of cultural sphere countries including Japan, Korea, and Vietnam, and subsequently among the Sinophone communities. Chopsticks have become more accepted in connection with Asian food in the West, especially in cities with significant Asian diaspora communities.

    Chopsticks are smoothed, and frequently tapered. They are traditionally made of wood, bamboo, metal, ivory, and ceramics, and in modern days, increasingly available in non-traditional materials such as plastic, stainless steel, and even titanium. Chopsticks are often seen as requiring practice and skill to master to be used as an eating utensil. In some countries it is often frowned upon if used incorrectly.
