Why in Japan only eat with chopsticks
The first sticks were invented about 3,000 years ago, they were invented by the Chinese. They were more like tongs, they are made from bamboo.
They were initially designed for ease of cooking. Forceps was very convenient to flip and get food. Catch the hot pieces of food, not the cook burned his hands.
