    I'm pretty sure chopsticks are stronger than pencils
    You can make a higher powered repeating crossbow
    Chopsticks are also light so they can go farther too
    They're also pretty cheap, even for the steel ones :)

    I've never seen metal chopsticks before.
    Sounds like excellent ammo, just put a point on the heavy end and shoot them big end first.

    The really cheap restaurant ones with weighted tips added on might be fun.

    Steel chopsticks are actually pretty cheap sooo it's great for ammo.
    I think they would be shot from the light end so it would be more stable though

    The light end is not the stable part. jörg builds all of his fletchingless arrows front heavy for stability during flight

    Go to your local Korean market, they'll have a selection of good quality, low cost steel chopsticks.
