maybe it was just a friendly reminder?

anyways, are most hashi disposable or are there just as many permanent house-hold hashi like how we have knives and forks?
along the same lines: i wonder if there are any plastic hashi?

I got to read you post kusojiji before it was removed...if you don't mind, I'll frame it so it is on topic:

Q: "Is it considered bad manners to brag about being 'better than average' with chopstick proficiency?"
Answer: Only if you do so without a sense of humor about it.

Yes, there are plastic hashi. also there are 'training' hashi for kids, thay have a hinge between the two making it much easier for little hands to manage.

Where can I get those? Is it bad manners to show up an expensive restaurant with your own pair of 'training hashi'? Gives new meaning to the term 'ugly American'.

Actually, there was no question involved. Just an observation. One that I didn't think was offensive or off-topic. Who knew?

There are actually some expensive gift-quality hashi in fine wooden cases sold in any good store in Japan.

I always forget to buy the really nice gift Hashi like you mention...I end up buying bulk at a gift-shop in the airport. lol (hey...doesn't mean I don't like you if you ever get one of these. just means I'm a lazy shopper. )
