My boss went to Chinatown once to shop for Japanese bowls, plates and serving dishes. The lady behind the counter got real anxious as she saw my boss choosing high end tablewares.
When it came time to select the right chopsticks, the lady pushed these hand painted ones with gold on black that were, in her words, "Lacquer one thousand time."
They come in their own case with velvet lining......Paleeessseee!!!
