Dukori Material in Melior | World Anvil


A hard, glassy, volcanic rock from The Iji Islands that is used for tool crafting.

Dukori (literally "Black Rock"), also known as obsidian in certain parts of Melior, is a hard glassy volcanic rock used for many tools in The Iji Islands.   It can be knapped into many intricate shapes and is commonly used for knife blades, fishing hooks, spearheads and axe heads. Knapping refines the material down into a razor-sharp edge, making it sharper than many steel blades could achieve.   The Rakuwa of The Iji Islands enjoy crafting clean cut black dukori bowls and plates which form the traditional tableware of the islands. The bright coloured foods somehow look extra appetising when presented on this material.   Ijian celebrate the Festival of Masks tradition every year and work hard on competing to make the most elaborate hand carved dukori mask. They are often heavy to wear.
