The chopsticks that eliminate the need for a rest. Just let gravity take care of it.
Gravity Chopsticks® are not your ordinary traditional chopsticks. Gravity Chopsticks® are self-elevating chopsticks designed to keep the eating tips of your chopsticks sanitary without the need for a separate chopstick rest. Gravity Chopsticks® allow you and your company to dine in comfort and style.
Simple, sleek, clean, yet innovative design. Create an attractive place setting that will suit any style.
With our patent pending design, Gravity Chopsticks® are precision-machined from solid hardened aluminum alloy blocks and feature wood tips made from solid natural maple and walnut.
Designed with the ultimate sanitary goal in mind. Rest Gravity Chopsticks® on any of their elongated sides and let gravity do all the work.
From design, to manufacturing, to packaging, each chopstick is made locally in San Diego, California with the highest level quality and attention to detail.
With our Patent-Pending design, you will not need a separate chopstick rest to keep the eating tips of your chopsticks sanitary, and you will not need a separate rest to prevent the chopsticks from rolling off the table. As soon as you lay Gravity Chopsticks® down, the eating tips automatically elevate above the table’s surface.
Not just another ordinary pair of chopsticks.
Ever find yourself in a situation where you have nothing to rest your chopsticks on and are rightly reluctant to lay it flat on the eating surface? With Gravity Chopsticks® you can keep your chopsticks' tips sanitary and elevated anytime, anywhere, without the need for a chopstick rest. Our unique geometry design and precise weight for impeccable balance completely eliminates the need for a chopstick rest.
We only use materials that are food safe. Our chopsticks are treated with a food safe wood finish to protect and enhance the wood.
Staying environmentally conscious without sacrificing quality and safety is our top priority.
The aluminum ends are specially treated and plated using the most advanced technique, known as electroless nickel plating (EN), to increase durability, prevent wear, and offer superior corrosion resistance. EN is commonly used in engineering coating applications where hardness, corrosion protection, and good wear and abrasion resistance are required. It is one of the most respected and widely used materials, particularly in the food industry, where it’s extremely important to keep food free of metals. Electroless nickel plated items will not leach and will remain safe for the food they are touching.
With our Patent-Pending design, you will not need a separate chopstick rest to keep the eating tips of your chopsticks sanitary, and you will not need a separate rest to prevent the chopsticks from rolling off the table. As soon as you lay Gravity Chopsticks® down, the eating tips automatically elevates above the table’s surface.
We wanted to make sure the chopsticks will elevate no matter which side you rest the chopsticks on. With its unique shape and precise weight, the eating tips of Gravity Chopsticks® will automatically elevate when placed on any of their elongated sides.
With traditional chopsticks, little ones will not always be mindful to use a rest to keep their chopsticks clean in between uses. With Gravity Chopsticks® they won’t have to. You can feel rest assured that you are doing everything to promote cleanliness while reducing waste.
We noticed that with traditional chopsticks, you need to rest your chopsticks on a separate chopstick rest (or on a plate or a bowl) if you want to keep the eating tips off the table’s surface. This poses several inconveniences and sanitary issues. For example, a rest might not always be available, therefore, you will either have to hold onto your chopsticks in between uses or opt for the less sanitary option of laying them down directly on the table. If you rest the traditional chopsticks on a plate/bowl, quite frequently they will roll off the plate/bowl onto the table, or roll off the table and onto the floor. We wanted to fix these unsanitary incidents and create a pair of chopsticks that not only solve these sanitary concerns, but also one that would help to reduce waste.
Are the chopsticks easy to hold?
You should have no problem holding our chopsticks. The size and weight is perfectly balanced allowing easy handling.
Are the chopsticks heavy?
The chopsticks are lightweight and easy to hold. The pair weights roughly 0.8 oz (22 grams).
Is it dish washer safe?
We recommend handwash and towel dry to protect the integrity of the wood.
Are the chopsticks reusable?
Yes! Our chopsticks is made of quality hard wood which allows you to use it over and over again.
We are a small family owned and operated business. We are located in beautiful sunny San Diego. The idea of Gravity Chopsticks® came about when we were eating at a restaurant. The server took away our appetizer dishes and we had no where to rest our chopsticks. That was when the "ah ha!" moment hit.
