Handmade Japanese Nanbu Tetsubin, Unlined Cast Iron Water Kettle
Bold black, lightly glossy, hobnails cover the exterior of this extra large handmade Nanbu unlined Tetsubin kettle. Hand-cast with beautifully symmetrical small hobnails and a very sturdy, upright handle that offers a delightful vintage look that also feels great in the hand. With a superior pour and an inviting classic beauty, this is a Japanese kettle for using daily as well as for generations to come!
This Nanbu Tetsubin iron water kettle was crafted in Morioka City, Iwate Prefecture, Japan and is marked by the artist under the spout.
**Note - the handle does NOT fold down.**
Traditional Japanese Tetsubin water kettles, including our Kanzō are unlined meaning they do not have porcelain enamel linings or strainer baskets.
As you heat water, or infuse tea, a natural coating (or patina) will form to protect the interior of your cast iron water kettle. It is important your Tetsubin is allowed to fully air dry after each use. The Kanzō is marked by the artist under the spout.
From Morioka, Iwate Prefecture
Made in Japan.
