where to find chopsticks like the set I have?

OK, this is not a regular chopstick. This is something given to me as a gift a few years ago, and my friend cannot remember where she got it. It is a set of hard plastic chopsticks that are attached at the top and are spring loaded. There is a round wire that goes through the top of the chopstick set to keep them together. You cannot pull them apart. I love this thing- use it daily for flipping things, sauteeing spinach and vegetables, etc. It is so useful. But it's looking a little worse for the wear and I would like to get another. When I google chopsticks or go to different kitchen sites, all I get are regular chopsticks. Does anybody else out there have the same item and know where to purchase one?

      thank you, but this is actually more like a cooking tool as opposed to just regular chopsticks. Thanks for the link to wrapables, though. I have never seen that site before and they do have some cool stuff.

    2. Are they tong, or spring loaded, chopsticks?

        They are spring loaded, a hard plastic. Mine is white, and the friend who bought this for me has a black set. This is such a useful tool for cooking; I use it daily. My friend said they were not too expensive. Thanks for sending that link; I wish that was it.

      2. I saw something like this at Sur La Table. I think they're for kids.

        1. Hi,

          You can find them here: http://www.velocityartanddesign.com/s...

          I had a hard time too, the good thing is they sell wooden ones which if you're using them for cooking should last longer and be better for you.

          Hope this helps!

          1. Not exactly as you describe, but the same idea:
