Asian cuisines have been steadily rising in popularity around the world for decades now, and the Chopstick Master is a tool designed to combat one of the unfortunate byproducts of that increased popularity. The tool lets people create their own chopsticks at home, with a clever and easy-to-use system that helps with everything from carving to shaping to decorating.

Most East Asian cuisines are customarily eaten with chopsticks, and that means that restaurants (especially take-out restaurants) often provide diners with disposable chopsticks. These flimsy wooden implements get thrown away by the thousand at restaurants everywhere, leading to an upsetting amount of waste. With the Chopstick Master, consumers can skip the flaky wooden cutlery and create their own high quality sticks. All they need is a bit of time, some nice quality wood, and a will to make something.
