Chopsticks are eating utensils used widely in Asia, particularly China, Korea, Japan, and Thailand. They take the form of two sticks which can be made from bone, metal, wood, jade, or ivory, depending on the owner and intended use. Chopsticks are used by billions of people, and probably originated during the Shang Dynasty in China, between 1766-1122 years before the common era. Using chopsticks properly does require some practice, and each culture which uses chopsticks has its own traditions and superstitions surrounding the eating utensils. These should be followed when in the culture to avoid a faux pas.
