Alex: FS Hokujo 260ml Kyusu

Postby Alex » Jun 29th, '12, 04:51

Wasn't expecting to sell this any time soon but I made a mistake of ordering another Hokujo which I thought was going to be a bit flatter then it turned out. I now have 2 Hokujo kyusus of nearly the same dimensions and handle the same. so I'm going to sell this one.

Used for around 4-5 months. In perfect seasoned condition. Only had organic sencha run through it.

$85 Including shipping worldwide. (I live in the UK)

Hey Chip!

Can you lock this. I'm not going to sell this pot. I've decided to sell the other one instead to a friend. Reason being that I'm too attached to this pot after using it for 4-5 months daily, feels like getting rid of a friend.. Packing it away just made me miss it and the new pot felt a little souless in its place.

Also the taller shape made is better with Fuka for some reason.....have you noticed this or is it pot specific do you think?

Anyway....thanks everyone for not buying :mrgreen:

Generally, taller profile is better for Fuka. More squat is not. :mrgreen:
