Bamboo round chopsticks are shaped pairs of equal-length sticks that have been used as kitchen and eating utensils in virtually all of East Asia for over 2000 years. First invented and used by the ancient Han Chinese or the Zhou Dynasty over 2000 years ago, chopsticks later spread to other countries including Japan, Korea, Cambodia, Laos, Nepal, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. More recently it has spread to Hawaii, the West Coast of North America, and cities with Overseas Chinese communities all around the globe. Bamboo round chopsticks are smoothed and frequently tapered and are commonly made of premium bamboo.
Bamboo round chopsticks are held in the dominant hand, between the thumb and fingers, and used to pick up pieces of food. To use bamboo round chopsticks, the lower chopstick is stationary, and rests at the base of the thumb, and between the ring finger and middle finger. The second chopstick is held like a pencil, using the tips of the thumb, index finger, and middle finger, and it is moved while eating, to pull food into the grasp of the chopsticks.Chopsticks, when not in use, are placed either to the right or below one's plate in a Chinese table setting.
