Kikko futongata Tetsubin kettle by Kunzan
Crafted by the third generation traditional craftsman Kunzan, Mr. Sasaki Kazuo, who is known
for his mastery of traditional techniques coupled with imaginative new
innovations. This is the model for which Kunzan Ist won the Japan Crafts Award in the pre-war period.
This kettle has been specially treated by steam baking for 30-40
minutes, an oxidization process which improves its rust proof qualities.

after each use. The handle is fixed in place and cannot be folded down.
