Well, your shipping was a lot less too. The Den's are tough hombres too. The delicate clay ones are quite fragile by comparison.
I usually box the Den's Shincha pot for family outings, etc. I woud nevr think of doing this with the more expensive and delicate Tokoname ones. I have no regrets, and I have a lot nicer ones.
Don't get me wrong, the really nice hand made or crafted Tokoname Kyusu-s are really better, it is just that there is always a use for the bomb proof ones from Den's.
