Hand hammered woks

takadi | May 2, 2008 07:48 AM

I've been trying to look for those woks with those beautiful hammer marks on them, like the ones in these pictures

The "Wok Shop" ( sells hand hammered woks, but the ones I bought don't really have that distinctive hammer pattern. They came out with a new hand hammered one, but the hammer dents look really really strange, like they purposely put a bunch of dents in a regular wok as some gimmick

Anyways, it seems as if you can only get "authentic" hand hammered woks from China. Has anyone been able to get a hold of one in the US? I would probably assume that you could find anything and everything Chinese in San Francisco, but unfortunately I live in DC
