Let’s be honest – most of us don’t know how to use chopsticks, and it’s not a shame to admit. Eating with chopsticks is a lot harder than it looks, and it isn’t in the least convenient. For Asians, it’s a different story since it’s a part of their culture and they practice it from childhood (in some parts of Asia), but for Western countries, it makes no sense.
Why eat with two sticks when you could eat with a knife and a fork? The person behind this invention had enough of trying and failing to use chopsticks, but they wanted to preserve some of the cultural roots behind it, so they came up with this chopsticks-cutlery unnatural hybrid. It’s not chopsticks, but it’s not a fork either.
