The Snow Peak Carry-On Chopsticks are a great travel companion and conversation starter. With a collapsible design, these Chopsticks are easy to stash in a pocket or take up minimal room in a backpack. The handle is a hollow stainless steel tube that becomes the storage unit for the wooden upper chopsticks. Environmentally friendly, the wood of the Carry-On Chopsticks actually come from recycled broken baseball bats! Collpased, the Snow Peak Carry-On Chopsticks are only 4-1/2" long, making them small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. Included with the chopsticks are a special storage case and a strap to let you carry them around with ease. The Snow Peak Carry-On Chopsticks are winner of National Geographic Adventure Magazine "Best of Adventure Gear" award.
