This pryer is a single piece of steel! The twisted handle and shaft are not joined but rather a single piece of steel worked into this elegant form!
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!
Each pryer comes in a leather sheath (pictured).
Length is 15cm
