MaiPon sticks are an eating utensil used in JinDo.[1] Based on the name, they likely originated in MaiPon. They come in pairs, with one stick having a sharp pointed tip and the other having a flat shoveled end.[2]

Sarene had never used MaiPon sticks before arriving in Arelon, and had trouble eating with them when Kiin made HaiKo for her first meal in Arelon. Kaise found this to be unbecoming of a princess.[2]

Something similar to MaiPon sticks are used in both Torio and Nagadan on Komashi; when telling the story of Yumi and Painter, Hoid refers to them as MaiPon sticks for the convenience of his audience.[3][4][5]
