Woerden Designs is Back!
After raising $123,306 on our titanium chopsticks in 2018, we're back with an upgrade! Introducing our Titanium crystal finish ultralight chopsticks new for 2020!
Our Titanium Crystal Chopsticks are:
Ultralight: only 14 grams! (Our original titanium chopsticks were 51 grams!)
Crystal Titanium finish: We used a special process to heat the titanium in a vacuum at just the right temperature to create an easier-to-clean crystal finish that looks incredible
Titanium tube design: These chopsticks are made from super-strong Grade 1 pure titanium tubes
We listened! Many of you asked for a lighter weight chopstick that was easier to clean. Our Titanium Crystal Chopsticks are by far the lightest chopsticks we offer at only 14 grams, making them perfect for all-day use.
The Hidden Unhealthy Truth
Traditional wooden chopsticks can harm our environment and our bodies. It takes one aspen tree just to make a few thousand disposable chopsticks. Over 70 billion pairs of chopsticks are consumed around the world each year, which needs to cut 14 million aspens and results in deforestation of more than 9300 acres!
Being magnified 100x you can clearly see where bacteria can hide in all wooden chopsticks
Sulphur, hydrogen peroxide, sodium sulfite and mold inhibitor are chemical substances commonly used to make disposable chopsticks, even though they are not allowed. That's why the water turns yellow and gave off a pungent smell when you wash the disposable chopsticks.
The stainless steel tableware itself is not harmful to the human body, but some families have improperly used stainless steel tableware, which has caused chemical changes in stainless steel tableware and produced substances that are harmful to the human body. For example, in life, many households use stainless steel bowls, stainless steel tableware to contain salt, soy sauce, vinegar and other substances. For a long time, stainless steel tableware will undergo chemical reactions under the action of these substances, releasing them to the human body. Harmful substances will harm the human body if used for a long time. They must be cleaned frequently to keep it hygienic and dry.
How it's made
Our new chopsticks have a stylish and unique crystal finish. Mill finish titanium sheets or plates are secured in custom fixtures in a specialized furnace where the vacuum is equivalent to outer space. The furnace is gradually heated to near the melting temperature.
During this precision-controlled cycle, the titanium's natural crystal structure begins to enlarge and re-orientate. The crystals grow in a columnar pattern across the thickness of the titanium. A transition from hexagonal to cubic crystal alignment creates the uniquely faceted specular crystals. The resulting crystalized structure is only available in titanium.
With our Crystal Titanium Chopsticks, we hope to usher in the next era of chopsticks - reusable, resilient, and healthy utensils for everyday use.
HYGIENIC - Titanium is bacteria-resistant, and inhibits the growth of germ and other harmful pathogens. Because of its non-porous and non-stick nature, nothing seeps inside, both keeping the integrity intact and making it extremely easy to clean.
HEALTHY - Titanium is the most biocompatible and safe metal for the human body. It is the only element that our body fully accepts - even bone will grow around it.
CORROSION RESISTANT - It has excellent resistance to corrosion, nearly equivalent to platinum.
SUSTAINABLE - Titanium chopsticks are durable and reusable. Each meal enjoyed with our Crystal Titanium Chopsticks is another step closer to a greener world.
STRONG & LIGHT-WEIGHT - Titanium was named after Titans of Greek mythology because of its immense strength. It is less than half the density of steel, perfectly weighted for a quality feel and an everyday carry.
Using chopsticks have become more and more popular because of its benefits,
- Develop hand-eye coordination and concentration
- Improve motor skills and dexterity
- Build new pathways to the brain.
- Improve handwriting grips
- Provide an opportunity for rich social interactions
Save Nature. Protect Family.
Sturdy, stylish, and minimalist design for both adults and kids. Keep your family safe and healthy.
No-slip crystal finish. Be proud of yourself for using chopsticks and enjoy noodles perfectly and securely without worry that noodles will slip.

The cubic design of the tops prevents chopsticks from rolling away while the tips are cylindrical design, which integrates the ancient ideas of the orbicular sky and rectangular Earth.
A chopstick travel case and an elegant box for free. Very convenient to take with you anywhere and anytime, and a perfect gift for those you love!
Simple cleaning due to the crystal finish.

What people are saying about Woerden
Woerden Designs Collection was created to promote healthier eating and eco-sustainability.
"These chopsticks are a work of art! The weight is perfect, the balance is superb and the value is excellent. They will last forever! If I had two more hands I would order another set. No more broken splintery evil to the tongue chopsticks for me. Gourmet, homemade or fast food, it all tastes better. This finely crafted set takes one on an exciting adventure with every meal. Even works with cookies and milk! Get a set (or 3) now, your mouth will thank you!" -- Mark S James(Feedback from our Solid Titanium Chopsticks on retail website)
"Nice, light and goes through dishwasher well. Had for 3 months without an issue." -- Mack Flynn (Feedback from our Solid Titanium Chopsticks campaign)
"My girlfriend used to carry a set of wooden ones in her purse, which I found to be gross because wood absorbs things. I bought here these. She's had hers in her purse a few months now and has had no complaints." -- Pierre Markham (Feedback from our Solid Titanium Chopsticks campaign)
"I absolutely love these chopsticks. They're sturdy, but very lightweight. They're square on the top half, which keeps them from rolling. I've found them easy to use, even for slippery things like soups. I couldn't be happier with this purchase." -- Zainab Pitt (Feedback from our Solid Titanium Chopsticks campaign)
"I've been using cheap wooden chopsticks before I got these, and these titanium ones just feel so much better in my hand, and for some reason are easier to control! I feel much better using these. Dead useful for people like me who go camping a lot or work in summer camps that cook on campfires." -- Casey Wills (Feedback from our Solid Titanium Chopsticks campaign)
"I received my set of Zirconium chopsticks yesterday, and I am very pleased. The quality and workmanship is excellent, and I look forward to using these. Definitely my favorite set, hands down, just wish they were not so expensive, so I could purchase more. Even though they were late, the wait was worth it." -- blueumbrella (Feedback from our Solid Zirconium Chopsticks on retail website)
"Beautiful color and polish." -- Todd Hoffman (Feedback from our Solid Zirconium Chopsticks on retail website)
"Very nice cup. Size is a bit small but keeps warm well." -- Michael Stadnyk (Feedback from our Titanium Coffee Cup on retail website)
"One of the best products I've ever owned. It's light, very durable and is sized just right for a nice cup of coffee or tea. And, it doesn't look like everyone else's mug. No problem with hot liquids at all." -- Isaak Terry (Feedback from our Titanium Coffee Cup on retail website)
"Really Lite and even with scalding hot tea I can comfortable hold the cup without burning myself. Plus no weird metallic taste added to your drink of choice." -- Cora Mitchell (Feedback from our Titanium Coffee Cup on retail website)
"Beautifully made titanium bowl, just right as a rice bowl." -- John N Wood (Feedback from our Double-Wall Titanium Bowl on retail website)
"Pieces are very nicely mirror finished, Wish they were a little thicker , but they are plenty strong as is, just the handling feel would feel better if they were thicker IMO." -- Todd Hoffman (Feedback from our Titanium Cutlery Set on retail website)
"Mine came last week and I used it for rolling out beignets. I concur that it was a little smaller than I was used to, but the solidity and the weight made up for reduction in size. The cleanup was fantastic, no bits of dough to wash off, just a quick wash and done. The action was nice. I've tried marble ones before and found them rather gimmicky and have been relying on wood up until now. Very happy with the decision to back this. Thanks for this campaign. " -- Jed Johnson (Feedback from our Titanium Rolling Pin campaign)
"And it's only fair to add 2 things. 1) the free apron is really good. Much better than the ones normally available for sale. 2) it's a delight to get something before the published delivery date. Happy camper..." -- Iain Drummond (Feedback from our Titanium Rolling Pin campaign)
