Yes, but what would this imply about the social station of the BUDOKA? I say this appropo of a come-uppance I once received from my girlfriend's sister who, upon seeing me rub the splinters ofF my chopsticks, admonished, "High class people don't do this." (Because they don't freqUent the slop-shops which provide cheap WARIBASHI.)
