Wenge Wood "Dragon Pillar" Steel Prying Tool for Pu-erh Tea
Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Tea Shop
Incredible ornate carved screw-apart pick made from stained Wenge Wood. The pick is machine carved, but the Dragon Pole (龙珠) motif is exquisite.
The pick is made using the san-mai forging process, which gives both incredible strength and that classic damascene folded pattern. This process has been re-invented in modern times as the original process was lost to the ages. Pattern-welded steel using the san-mai process is the closest there is to the original lost art, and is both strong and aesthetically beautiful.
This makes for an elegant addition to any gong fu setup and will be a faithful companion to your pu-erh collection for as long as you desire!
The four Chinese Characters are: 吉祥如意
English Meaning: May You Always Get More Than You Wish For!
