I am not asian, but I am a great asian enthusiast. I got into the habit of using chopsticks to eat for every meal that doesn't require my hands as the utensils, hamburgers , tacos, etc. They are very stylish, and extremely smooth to the touch. The case I had to work a bit to get it to open and closed more easily, but other than that is well made and looks fantastic. Even with the cons I love these chopsticks.
ProsI love the feel of the chopsticks in my hands. they have a squarish feel so they don't roll around in your grip. They have a decently fined tip so you can get them small pieces of food, assuming you can work with these chopsticks. And with the 'Longevity' on the case and chopsticks, it feels like you are blessing your food before you eat, haha.
ConsThe case was tightly locked shut and had to semi force it to open, then had to repeat opening and closing the case till it was able to easily open. When I said they were extremely smooth to the touch, I really meant it. From grip to tip they are as smooth if not smoother than a baby's bottom. If you use these for eating with food that has any kind of 'slime' or 'slick' sauce, like certain pastas for example, you will be wrestling with the food unless you can master using the chopsticks like a mini vice and are able to connect the tips and hold them long enough to eat.
