Hilltribe Opium Collection Set in Bamboo Tube
Used to score the pods of the opium poppy, and then collect the sap, this set of metal tools and bamboo storage tube are the real thing, straight from the hills of northern Thailand. The Thai government, with a little help from their friends (US DEA), has done a good job of eradicating the poppy fields, so the people no longer have a use for these tools. Set includes the tube, two collectiing paddles, and a two-bladed scorer.
Size: Tube 8.75 in. x 1.75 in.; long paddle 7 in. x .66 in.; medium paddle 7.25 in. x .75 in.; scorer 5.75 in. x .25 in.
