Making Tools

It is an old belief that the best substances for making tools are those that once had life in them, as opposed to artificial substances.

Thus, wood or ivory is better for a wand than metal, which is more appropriate for swords or knives.

Virgin parchment is better than manufactured paper for talismans, etc.

And things which have been made by hand are good, because there is life in them.
