Bryan_drinks_tea: Offering Banko Kyusu, broken handle

by bryan_drinks_tea » Sep 18th 16 1:45 am

I'm offering a Banko Kyusu, Made by Tachi Masaki. I purchased it from Yuuki Cha some years ago. I'm not charging for the teapot, but I will charge for shipping. Lower 48 of the US please.

The handle broke off the day I got it. The lid and spout are still fine, and this pot has seen a ton of use with sencha only.

Someone should "kintsugi" that :) and with the break completely external there's more leeway in materials. How big is the pot btw?

How big is it? Ive been looking at Tachi Masaki bankos for a while with much desire + I've got some good practice with teapot repairs. If it is a small one, I'd be definitely interested. I am in Canada, but would pay for international shipping.

Wow, I must have been out of it when I wrote about it last night. My bad.

It holds between 225-250 ml.

Thanks. I'll pass on this, it is too big for me. The clay looks beautiful.

Hi Bryan, I sent you a PM but it looks like it's stuck in my outbox. How much would you charge for shipping to Chicago, IL, 60707?

The message isn't stuck in your outbox. It just means that he hasn't read it yet. The system here is... weird.

Easy fix with JB Weld! I'm using a Yixing that the handle broke off of when dropped it in the sink. I fixed it pretty much immediately and it's been rock solid ever since. I don't even notice the break much of the time, and it gets a lot of use (almost every week, if I'm in town).

Easy fix with Krazy Glue too, which is what I used once this pot arrived. It's been working fine ever since.

JB weld has a much stronger bond, and the color is even compatible with this clay!

Yes, JB Weld is much, much stronger than Krazy Glue and actually gets stronger with heat during the bonding stage! It's more of a black/gray than a brown, though
