Mentorigata Tetsubin kettle with a copper lid 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.
The simple yet elegant form is a favorite with tea masters.
This kettle has been specially treated by steam baking for 30-40
minutes, an oxidization process which improves its rust proof qualities.
Despite this, care should always be taken to empty the kettle thoroughly
after each use. The handle is fixed in place and cannot be folded down.
