9The end of a toothpick

If you ever see a wooden toothpick take a look at the end part of it. The end part of the toothpick is not a design for looks but in fact, it has some use. In Japanese tradition that end part is broken off and used as a stand so that the front tip of the toothpick does not touch any surface. This keeps it clean and ready for another use. This also lets people know that the toothpick has been used.
