How is this different from wooden chopsticks? At least those can float. This will sink.
There is many reasons for a titanium chopsticks. Like the same reason why we make expensive titanium blades.

In korea for example, people use metal chopstick due to the cold weather. Because metal conduct heat better, the feel of heat traveling to ur hands warms you in sub zero temperature. Using metal chopstick also prevent ur chopsticks from breaking due to sub zero temperature(wooden chopsticks become super brittle in winter).

Using metal most of the time is to prevent breakage. And a wooden chopstick kept in backpack easily break when you throw/drop ur pack on the ground unknowingly. And most hiking utensils are able to "fold" up and easily kept.

Of course there are more reasons but I dun think you would understand.

ah, my pack axe needs to go...

Alright, time to build up the 'parang' project warchest, so I need to sell some things. I looked in my cupboard and I can't bear to part with anything....so since I'm building a chopper, I guess I will let someone else enjoy this axe.

FOR SALE is a handforged custom axe - an European maker, I actually can't remember his name but he makes good axes and hawks (probably will recall once I wake up). The head is forged, not casted (so it's tougher) has a hammer poll, and is blued (very nice). The edge is sharp, but it can be polished more if you want, just use sandpaper or a stone.

The balance is nice, not too heavy for your backpack or belt carry - this is a pack axe after all, and designed to help you with camp chores - I especially like the hammer poll. It doesn't come with any sheath, but I have made a small leather cover for the sharp edge. Ergos are great, no hot spots in the palm (Granfors Bruks' haft is too big for me).

Haft is seasoned hickory, so it's good stuff (not beautiful in terms of woodgrain but it's strong, stronger than ash, curly maple or the fancy presentation stuff).

Please PM me for price and if you need more details. It won't cost you more than 3 large, and there's no USPS, Singpost, Fedex, UPS, DHL, ICA, A&E or anything you need to bother with

Guys I have an Mtech knife case, Black, that holds 12 folders. I'm lazy to post a photo so just google it and see if you want it. I bought 2 to defray my shipping cost and only used 1. Still brand new in plastic bag. SGD25.

It's not $37 USD when u factor in shipping. My 2 cents. When you add up the total cost and it's below sg shops, then go for it. Shipping is about $50 sing or more if i rmb correctly.

Sure...metal is tougher in cold weather and wood is super brittle. DID YOU JUST PULL THAT OUT OF YOUR ASS? You're in a knife thread, for ****'s sake. Basic metallurgy 101, ever hear of it?

Looks like somebody skipped basic physics in high school.

Here, little boy, read some basic properties about metal before opening your mouth in a grown ups forum

www -dot- chemistryexplained -dot- com/elements/T-Z/Titanium.html

And if there are more reasons, mind enlightening me? Oh wait, you can't cos you're full of **** lol.
Granted you got those facts right, you're being a plain jerk.
Why we take it that you guys won't understand is the our reasons will never seem legit to you. Does using Ti chopsticks as marlin spikes make sense to you? No. Does using Ti chopsticks as kubatons make sense to you? No.

Given those justifications, I don't think that warrants silly mannerism from a presumably grown up man like you.
If you're here to genuinely correct an erroneous concept, we appreciate it. But if you're just correcting us because it makes you a more intelligible being, I scorn thee.

Maybe he did pull that out of his ass, the coefficient of friction for Ti is lower of course. But did you pull your comments out from your ass too, given that they are equally shitty?
