Finally, a way that we can all just get along (at the dinner table)

I don't know about you guys, but while I'm fairly adequate with chopsticks, I occasionally stumble onto that rare piece of giant tofu, or onagiri, or whatever, that's so large it needs to be cut apart before I wrench it towards my mouth. And because I've made the mistake of eating Asian food with Asian friends, I'm always a little hesitant about how to tackle the situation. Do I anchor the food down with one chopstick in my left hand and try to serrate with the other in my right? Do I just keeping folding the food in half as much as I can, and then try to stuff it down my throat? Or do I reach for the knife and fork that's staring up at me, and just give in to the eventual embarrassment? Well, consider my problems solved. According to the Cooking Enthusiast site, Fusion Flatware helps you "eat in any language!"Â  The set of 6 chopsticks full of silverwarey  goodness sells for $34.99 and is available here.
