I'm uninspired by this design. Might be that someone could invent a truly tactical titanium chopstick kit that has screw on arrow heads and a mini crossbow/spear gun so one can hunt dinner, start a fire and prepare the fresh meal with spices etc all in a mean leather kit with petroleum based camo paint that can also act as a fire starter. Not to detract from the fact that these are beautiful, however they have no little rest block (or whatever you call it) no storage system, and I was not getting a repetitive strain injury from bulk standard issue chopsticks so I'd be better off to spend the $49 on food. function before fashion !

If they're not made of Platinum and don't cost at least $300 what's the point? (Note: Please don't use this as inspiration to make $300 Platinum chopsticks....please.)

Got my chopsticks today. Yes I opted for the black coated. They are a bit smaller than I envisioned. My other pair is no named polymer that are much lighter. Think I paid $15 or so for them. They are Japanese type so you have some idea of what the Inspirs are like. Inspirs are on top.

I don't get why many feel the urge to judge what is an obsurd product on MD. EVERY single product, whether Pokémon decks or expensive knives, here is a luxurgy. We don't need any of them. These aren't even the most expensive chopsticks out there. Louis Vuitton makes a set for $450. There are several for over $100 at this site. http://www.japanchopsticks.com/product-group/6

Just to clarify, disposable wooden chopstick are an enviromental disaster. 3.8 million trees, to make 57 billion one use chopsticks a year. Finding a re-usable chopstick is a good deed for the planet. Quality wood, plastic, metal -- up to you, but better than single use. https://green.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/10/24/disposable-chopsticks-strip-asian-forests/

Aren't most chopsticks made from bamboo?
I'm not saying to be wasteful, and I have metal ones at home. But bamboo isn't really something people are worried about.

@Aeroknot I personally have a nice set of polymer from Japan. But as you say, KingGhidorah, the article itself points out that 45% of the chopsticks from China are made from "trees" other than bamboo. The remainder (55%) is made from bamboo (which I believe is technically a grass). Not saying 1.9 million is not a lot of trees but it is far from the 3.8.
What is absent from the debate and article is the cost of making chopsticks from other materials. Much like the decry of making plastic shopping bags. I believe there are costs (in terms of the environment) associated with titanium to bring products to market.

I'm trying to find an instant where I'll be using these chopsticks. Definitely not gonna bring them on to any of my hiking/camping trips (Already got dozens of cheap disposable bamboo chopsticks ). I'd probably just put them on display next to my lightsaber and tell everyone "hey, that's a pair of titanium chopsticks. How cool is that?"?

I'll have to pass on these, but someone let me know if they ever drop a $90 gold toothpick.

We have toothpicks for $40, but if you get the deluxe package, personalization, and the gold leaf, it is just under $90.

Thought they had a drop for titanium tooth picks. Been a while and not gold nevertheless...

This is a monument to pointless, [moderated] snobness. The point of chopsticks is to use wood so that the metal doesn't affect the taste of the food. 49 bucks for two titanium sticks? Why the fuck do you even need titanium for a utensil to eat? Do you have fucking adamantium teeth or what?!

I have a pair of titanium chopsticks that gets carried with other Ti utensils for my camping bag.
I don't use them at home since they can leave marks on ceramic bowls and dishes.

Gosh golly gee, you sure got me there with all your posted sources!
Except you didn't, because you've yet to refute any point I've made. Per the original response, I was stating 440 as a comparative because there really aren't any other harder stainless steel grades. Feel free to let me know what utensils you happen to have that are made from 440 though, because you also haven't indicated that is what your comparison image contains!
At the end of the day, you bought some cheaper titanium chop sticks which are most definitely softer and cheaper than 6Al4V titanium. But I tell you what, when I get back from vacation and if I still remember, I'll pick up a few pieces of the various grades of titanium I can find and test it on my own ceramic dishes to bring about a more scientific comparison as to why you get marks. If anything, I am just as interested in testing and seeing results as to what is more suitable.

You stated "the only stainless that even comes close to being as hard as Grade 5 titanium is 440". I showed with multiple references that even 440A is much harder than 6Al4V. That's called refuting.
My stainless chopsticks are decades old and definitely not as hard as 440. But that's the point. An unknown stainless obviously softer than 440 is still hard enough to not leave a mark, unlike Ti.
And you seem to have automatically assumed these Inspirs set of chopsticks are made of Grade 5, but it's not listed anywhere. Their kickstarter page does say "100% pure titanium", which would suggest Grade 1-4.
My Ti set probably are Grade 2, as manufacturers do in fact prefer pure unalloyed Ti for food related products. For example Vargo uses Grade 2 and Snow Peak uses Grade 1.
I definitely won't be holding my breath for you to remember doing anything beyond speculations based on imagination.
