Good place to get a cast-iron wok in toronto?

Hi all,

Since I just got through a kitchen reno and got myself a Bluestar gas oven from Costco (great deal, that!) I've wanted to get into wok cooking.

After some research I had decided to go with a carbon steel wok; I've checked nikolau but they didn't have quite what I was looking for, and eventually I visited Tap Phong and found a 16" (!!) cantonese-style carbon steel wok for $18 that seems pretty good.

However now I realize I'd also like to try a traditional northern-style cast iron wok as well, maybe a 12-14" wok. Not an american-made, thick-walled wok but rather a chinese style, fragile, thin-walled cast iron wok with a handle and relatively steep walls.

Does anyone have any idea where I can find such a wok in the GTA?
