Star Wars meets rice: Japanese company sells lightsaber chopsticks

Star Wars meets rice: Japanese company sells lightsaber chopsticks: "


If you happen to both be a Star Wars fan and have a penchant for Far Eastern food, this new gadget might be the right thing for you: lightsaber chopsticks. A Japanese company called Kotobukiya (which also has a US website) is selling three different models.

The red version is aimed at Darth Vader fans for some reason, the green one is for Yoda fans and the blue model is supposedly the right one if you like Luke Skywalker best.


Kotobukiya plans to sell the chopsticks in Japan only at this point (starting in November), but Geek Stuff 4 U lets everybody living outside this country pre-order already (price: $14.42 plus shipping). And yes, you can eat with these things apparently.

Go forth, brave Jedi warriors, and use your chop sabers to mix just a little extra wasabi into your soy sauce. You can handle it. It is a known fact that eating sushi with chop sabers vastly strengthens your ability to ingest horseradish products. Either way, wield your weapons and ready the way for a truly epic eating experience with these personalized chopsticks.
