    I picked this up in a thrift store for my son to have something to research a few years back, as he loves Asian stuff. He figured out what most of it says, wish I could remember. But he feels like the piece of bamboo is rather old.
    So I'm looking for any insight, knowledge, guesses, inclinations and even opinions.
    It's 10 1/4" long x almost 3" wide.
    I've posted this to shut him
    But seriously, he'd love any thoughts you may have.
    Thanks for checking it out:~)

      Nutsabotas6, the Chinese use them when writing calligraphy. And to my knowledge that's where they originated. But I'm sure you've seen computer mouse pads with wrist rest on them? But these go back to ancient times.

      I can tell you from the writing on this, and my son making me go to local college campus's to Chinese restaurant's that no person can read it exact. They can tell us the jest of what it says, but then say how many different Chinese symbols are used and mixed differently depending on who's writing.
      But the pics do no justice to the back and how old this thing looks. Even though the front looks great, but you can see where it's been used. Where it's whitish is where someone had used this a fair amount.
      Thanks for your interest!
