This time culinary rather than angling: "collapsible" screw-in chopsticks. These I bought with the screw fittings already set in the raw wood and the whole cut down to the right size; I just sanded the wood smooth, shaped the chopsticks a little and then lacquered them. This time I used a technique called "Rubbed Urushi" which looks a little different to the kind of finish you get on bamboo fishing rods.
"Tsuribito" means "angler" in Japanese, but Adam's blog The Complete Tsuribito delves into much more than fishing. This is a terrific idea for a greener (and more aesthetically pleasing) New Year: beautifully crafted, two-piece chopsticks to go anywhere you go. Jack & Barbra
