Featherlight Metal Utensils

The Titanium Chopsticks Create Optimal Balance When Eating

— August 13, 2011 — Eco
Since we all have to eat three meals a day (at the very least), it doesn't seem so preposterous that new utensil designs like the Titanium Chopsticks keep popping up. It's important to refine activities we perform daily to promote comfort and ease in our lives.

Designed by an eyewear maker and produced by Japanese company Metaphys, the Titanium Chopsticks use the balance found in glasses into the design. Even though these chopsticks are essentially made using metal material, they are light as a feather and just as sturdy. Titanium also has no odor or taste, an antibacterical effect that prevents allergies and can tolerate repeated boiling and dishwasher cycles. Did I forget to mention that it is also 100 percent recyclable? The Titanium Chopsticks have it all.
