Designs like the Twin One make this "gajin" smile inside. For those of you who haven't seen the film 'The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift,' a "gajin" refers to someone who is an outsider of Asian culture. There is no bigger indicator of a gajin than someone who can't use chopsticks.

Thankfully, designers Adrian and Jeremy Wright of DesignWright have solved the problem of tricky chopsticks with Twin One. Twin One is a knife and fork combination that interlocks to form a pair of chopsticks on the fly. This design is great because it benefits both customers and restaurants. Restaurants won't have to stock up on both chopsticks and utensils, and customers won't have to suffer from the intense shame associated with asking for a knife and a fork in an Asian restaurant. Who doesn't want to save money and face?
