    it would be more practical if the damned things worked worth a damned.

    the tips are thinner than at the base so they bend when trying to pick up food, and the plastic is also rounded so the food then tends to shoot out from between the sticks when any pressure is made. i end up stabbing the food with them and using them as forks. they look nice but i dont want to juggle the food im trying to eat.

    I’d love to get my hands on those as a collectible, just an odd piece for my collection. Wouldn’t use them to eat.
