  2. Dear Mr Fernando, thanks for posting photos of the scribing tool and the special left thumb nail. perhaps you can put some information on how the leaf sutta is opened and closed, and how it is held for chanting. I heard that the leaves need to be treated (boiled and dried) before it can be used. Some information on that would also be good. Many thanks
