When you find me I come as one,

When you use me, I am two,

Many of you abuse me

Twice as many, refuse me

And like a pencil I have a use

What am I?

Hint:

I'm more popular in some places than others

Spent a good amount of time on this one, are you up for the challenge?

Solution:

Chopsticks

When you find me I come as one,

When you buy them, come together

When you use me, I am two,

you need to break them into two pieces

Twice as many, refuse me

not all of us know how to use them

About the hint:

In chinese or Japanese restaurants you can find it, but not italian
