Tsugai

If all of your family members use chopsticks, there are twice as many sticks as the families. You know chopsticks are usually kept apart, so you have to find right pairs among all of them for each meal.

So something to pair up the chopsticks would be useful.
Tsugai is a chopstick rest made of metal that you can also use as a chopstick bundle when put in the kitchen cabinet.

It makes the chopsticks stay afloat, so it can keep the chopsticks clean.
Inside the back of it there is a magnet, so when it stands, it sticks with another one to support each other. (It stands itself alone of course though.)

Tsugai means “a pair” in Japanese.

Teko

Happy new year! Sorry for the slow update. I’ve been really sick for more than a week.
Teko is a Japanese word for “lever”. A small lever on the chopstick works as a chopstick stand so that the front end doesn’t touch the table. Also, it helps the chopsticks stick to each other. (Is this already used somewhere?)
