Hi all - just a quickie comment.
The use of bamboo implements......while they are new and therefore well sanded with smooth edges etc they should be fine to use. HOWEVER, if they begin to split, fray or crack please STOP USING THEM right away. Because of the way bamboo is constructed, the individual strands can become as sharp as knives. In some tropical/ subtropical places they are even used as knives.
Nice to see you all again by the way.
