Seeking a small, tapered, French rolling pin

Can someone guide me to a small, handleless, tapered rolling pin that is truly meant to be used and is from a trust worthy place?

I love my tapered French rolling pin and will never go back to one with handles. I especially love the way the taper keeps my edges from thinning out. However, the thing is really long, too long for things like parker house rolls, small flat breads, and tortillas. Finding a tapered rolling pin around 13 inches long is, for some reason, crazy hard.
I have found this fellow's lovely pins of the right size and finish
but they don't have that taper.
I found this chapati pin
that is probably perfect but it seems to have a finish on it that doesn't look food-safe. Also, the website seems a little skeevy. It seems to repeat a theme I have found with chapati pins. Love the shape but they are often painted and from websites I think look questionable.
I live out in the boonies so making my way to an Indian cookware shop is out. I would be willing to call a reputable brick and mortar and order over the phone. I know this seems like a crazy obsession but I just rolled out three batches of parker house rolls with a giant French pin and it has lit a fire under my ass to make this happen.
