Kai Carving, Jining
The traditional products of regular script carving are crabstick and ruyi (an S-shaped or ornamental object, formerly a symbol of good luck) which are made of Kai tree. The texture of Kai wood is solid and flexile, thus not easy to get broken when made into crutches. Kei wood has golden colour, with dainty lines and the carving Ruyi is exquisitely carved.
