Most of the time when I'm wandering through a bazaar, I see lots of brightly colored plastic things from China. (This is not all bad; I picked up a little carrot grater that's perfect for carrot salad and it was less than 50 cents.) But when you see a place that is not overwhelming plastic or colorful, it's time to stop. I picked up this walnut rolling pin and the giant chekich a couple of weeks ago from a non-colorful place. He had lots of other cool stuff too. For a little scale, the rolling pin is about as long as one you'd see in the US.
A chekich is for stamping flatbreads so they don't puff up in the middle. Usually you see smaller ones like these and I have quite a few of them. A big one like this is for stamping the entire center of a loaf of bread. Central Asian naan is really good because there's the stamped center, but also a rim around the edges that rises. You get two totally different textures in one loaf of bread, and since it's cooked in a tandir, that makes it even better.
