Hand hammered woks

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" (www.wokshop.com) 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
