The stories of Feng-kan (Big Stick) and Shih-te (Pickup) are intimitely linked with Han-shan (Cold Mountain).

Shih-te got his name because Feng-kan found him as an abandoned boy. Feng-kan picked up the crying boy and brought him in to live as a laymember of the Kuoching Temple. Shih-te spent most of his life working in the temple kitchens. When Han-shan visited the temple, he and Shih-te could often be found joking in the kitchens.
