    Is the price for one toothpick, or a box of five?

    that's actually pretty cheap since they need to turn down a log to make each one

    In Botswana is an amazing place called Okavango Delta. I was there a few months ago and one of the locals pointed out a big thorny shrub. He told us it was thorn acacia, and that the thorns were widely used as toothpicks. I snipped off a couple with my nail clipper. They have proved to be very good toothpicks indeed. I still have them. They are tough as nails and have a needle point at one end. They are ivory white and just slightly abrasive.

    If you dropped them, Rainman could tell you how many. ( You had to have seen the movie to get it.)

    The Chinese are gonna come in and steal your market.
    The current scare might prop your side up for a while.
    They would have to be high precision toothpicks for the machinists world as we are very picky and fussy.
    Are they made to a few tenths or even sub-micron tolerances?
    We will pay more for that. It's a pride and mine is better thing.

    Rather have one made from stainless so it can be reused...
