Thanks, i found it at the Japan Traditional Crafts which is at Aoyama Square in Tokyo. Sasaki Kazuo, 3rd caster of Kunzan, made it and you can easily found it in Hojo's Tea products lineup (T20 : http://hojotea.com/item_e/kunzan.htm )

This is my trusty old titanium kettle. It holds 850ml, weighs next to nothing and has provided me with steaming hot water on countless hikes and all sorts of trips for 25 years. It doesn't rust and there's no need to save it from a burning house, it will only look better afterwards :mrgreen:
It has been sitting on glowing tibetan yak dung, coals, wood, you name it, but most of the time on a modded Optimus hiking stove.
It also serves as a tea pot or container for all sorts of tea gear in my backpack; I don't go on trips without it.

Is there such a glut of coins that they had no better destiny than this?

I'm actually quite fond of the way some japanese craftsmen recycle old materials.

Its almost exactly the same when during reconstruction of old shinto temples sometimes the head-monk will give the old iron nails to a swordsmith to create a new memento for the reconstructed temple :)

Sorry; no provenance. It came from a curio shop that deals with estate sales and such. It had been neglected, with heavy scale inside the kettle. The wind furnace had at (least) one time had water in it, too. It replaces an iron bean pot and an electric okiro I had made about four years ago.
I'm going to make an electric eye for it that's removable, so it could still be used for charcoal as well; a precondition of my benefactor for using it in the house

Ok....now it makes more sense, as it's following a long tradition.

if the chinese were to do this, you can consider that there is indeed gluts of ancient coins.. except that the chinese used less iron and more bronze/brass into their coins.
