OK, this is not a regular chopstick. This is something given to me as a gift a few years ago, and my friend cannot remember where she got it. It is a set of hard plastic chopsticks that are attached at the top and are spring loaded. There is a round wire that goes through the top of the chopstick set to keep them together. You cannot pull them apart. I love this thing- use it daily for flipping things, sauteeing spinach and vegetables, etc. It is so useful. But it's looking a little worse for the wear and I would like to get another. When I google chopsticks or go to different kitchen sites, all I get are regular chopsticks. Does anybody else out there have the same item and know where to purchase one?
