Fantastic!! I love these things. If there is a meal that can be eaten with them, I do. I wish the caps were screw on so I'd worry less about losing them but I'm always very cognizant when I pull these out anyways. They really make you use proper technique too. Not sure how long the wood will last but when it gives out I'll definitely buy more. If you know anyone who loves sushi or eats a lot of noodles this is their sexy new utensil. Here's a pic of beef stroganoff in an Orikaso bowl with the Snow Peak Chopsticks.
