 I'd be surprised if Double Monk didn't sell them, but I wouldn't bother. Just use anything with a smooth, rigid surface, and it'll have the same effect (people commonly use the back of a teaspoon.).

You asked the question in an area with a clear bias, so the response was definitely a predictable one, but I don't think you'll get an unbiased one anywhere. Everyone has someone they know that does one or the other, or their kids like one, or they personally pursue it as a hobby.

Unfortunately it looks like they've taken it off their website. I can't think of anyone else doing chukkas for a similar price that will cater to your wider feet, at least off the top of my...
