    Some Asian restaurants serve chopsticks that are connected at the tip. Is it true that they have to be rubbed together before using to remove the extra or grainy parts of the wood that is left once they are split? Thanks a lot.

    That is a cool question…I personally pick the extra wood off with my fingers, but if it only works by rubbing them, then I would do so. After all, you do not want to get wood in your food, right!
