Knitting needles are often metallic with smoothly round ends. (Kpw)
You can get those in various sizes and for free from grandma's sewing supplies if she isn't watching.
The smoothly rounded end of the (artist's) paint brush handle is a good substitute for a hand-crafted chopstick. (K5)
The O.P. already has one of those in their hand, they only have to turn it end-for-end.
