So recently I decided I wanted to pick up the ability to use chopsticks. I've watched several videos and read several guides but I can't manage it. What I would like to know (at the moment) is this - In all the videos I've seen the chop sticks are thick on one end and thin(ner) on the other end. The ones that I have from a local restaurant are the same thickness throughout with points on the end. Does this actually matter since no matter what I do I can't get the bottom (un-moving) chopstick to stay stable causing the top one to never line up with it.
If it ISN'T an issue, I'm going to assume my muscle memory is screwing me even more than I thought. Thanks either way!
