They’ve come out quite well and don’t take long to make. If I have a bunch of premade ‘blanks’, I can do this at events without power. All good stuff.
I don’t like the word chopsticks. It’s been around for only a short time and is an English word for a much older product. I know that every Asian culture has their own name, but I’m going a different way.
I tell people that these were originally invented by the people of what is now Scotland, and they only used one. The Asians stole the idea from them and had to add a second stick.
All lies, of course. However, I’d love a new name/word to use.
Viking culinary death stick
Not all ideas are good ideas (clearly), but I’d like to hear them anyway.
Holy crap man, the price of the hardwood chopsticks is insane. $100 for a pair of, granted really nice, sticks? Woof!
I’d say there is some market room there for bespoke chopsticks.
Man, those bitters look awesome. I knew you made and sold vanilla, but I’ve been making my own with vodka for ages, need to try with rum though, I’ve got quite the selection from my trips to Nassau. Next time I’m looking for something different I’ll hit your site up, need an excuse to get the syrup too, though 4 oz seems small.
If you are making vanilla with rum, use the cheapest stuff you can find. The amount of additional flavour you’d get from a premium rum is zero. However, using rum definitely makes a difference in the end product.
4 oz. IS a bit small. I’ll give you that. I have several reasons for that decision. They are all secret.
As a member of the haggis-eating elite (within actual walking distance of a native haggis farm, with all the little haggis beasts running free-range on the moors) I support the name Haggis Stabber, and suggest the following contraction: Haggistabber.
Or there’s dinnerprodder, FoodFulcrum™, or baitcrane.
