Helpful Hints from joeeze: Make your own skewers from chopsticks
From the July & August issue of Cook's Illustrated: "Having run out of metal skewers while making large batches of kebabs, Francis Hodgins of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania discovered a new use for the collection of wooden takeout chopsticks lingering in her kitchen drawer. She transformed them into sturdy skewers for meat chunks by honing one end with a pencil sharpener."

What Avo said. A packet of cheap bamboo skewers lasts forever and if they are in the room Edwin Land's ghost will be much happier.

Cheap bamboo skewers (soaked in water to retard burning) are a far better choice. A smaller puncture, less material to deal with and sanitary (are those previously used chopsticks?).
