Chopsticks (Kuai Zi)

Chinese have chopsticks and spoons on the table. There is no knife at a Chinese table, because the food has already carved and cut up into pieces either large enough for a mouthful or so well cooked that the chopsticks can easily separate them. Chopsticks are used to lift almost all foods into the mouth. Chopsticks are of ivory, bone, bamboo, plastics, etc.
