Some good info on cast iron woks can be found here.

The casting of iron woks in Guangdong, China, in 1840

I've ordered from this vendor in the past, but have not tried their woks. Their products seem authentic. Might be worth a look. The prices seem reasonable too.

I ordered a 16" Chinese made cast iron wok form the Wok Shop. So far I love it. Its light weight and heats up quickly.
