Some other "hashi" points (sorry, no pun intended)

When eating w/ friends & family, it's OK to pick up food from a common plate but it's good manners to turn the chop-sticks over & use the end you didn't put in your mouth (the clean end). To eat, just return to correct position.

Girls, they ARE NOT hair ornaments!!! To me, that kind of use looks as silly as a fork in a hair bun.

This drives me NUTS
You don't need to rub your disposable chop-sticks together more than a couple of times. I always see "gaijin" (non-Japanese) rubbing their sticks together as if they were trying to start a fire. There won't be splinters piercing your tongue & lips. If you notice a wayward splinter, just pull it free of the chopstick & keep eating.

Yes Kin...long Chinese cooking hashi are a lot better than wisk, tongs or spatula (except for eggs sunny-side-up & 2" steaks on the grill).

Tried it. you are 100% correct on the SSU eggs...the 2" steaks were less than elegant but I managed it. a BBQ fork worked better though.

Hedkikr or anyone: Have you ever seen metal Hashi for cooking? is there even such a thing? or would that be blasphemous in some way? Seems I could do a lot more with stronger chops.

Methinks holding a metal stick into a frying pan would not be the smartest idea...unless of course you wanted them melted to your skin permanently.

The metal hashi (about a foot long if memory serves) were for arranging charcoal in a hibachi. The part you hold was wrapped in thin cotton cord to prevent burning.

Hope this helps.

I know it's a little off topic, but you don't need to touch SSU eggs with anything really. Once you're ready to solidify the top of the egg, you don't have to flip it. Just make sure you're using a pan that has a lid. Add a little water and cover the pan, the water should evaporate in under a minute, and the steam will have cooked the top of the egg. Best eggs I've ever had have been made that way...you never break the yolk

Anyway, sorry...I've never even eaten with chopsticks

Yeah...

Those are a modern version of what my Ojiisan used to use! I must invent a kata for them.

BTW: What are they called?

most people who watch tv will know about the carling advert where some guys are eating chinese food and their hashi have a little knife and a little fork on the end lol.

Ahh...sharp, pointy instruments of death. Now, my sister just came back from Japan...why couldn't she have given me those skewers instead of Otedama?

(harlan starts tossing otedama at desk...wondering if there are martial applications...)
