One last sale before the new year :D
I've been going back and fourth on this one for awhile now, but I feel like I need to let this one go.
I've realized overtime that I personally prefer slightly larger pots so this one has mostly has been sitting in its box since I've owned it.
A shame to let it go, but better to go to someone that will actually get some use out of it is the preferably option of just having it sit in a drawer by my desk I think :)

130ml(max)
perfect no-drip pour
Comes with tomobako, cloth, and artist/kiln history papers
$295

I’m away from my babies, on the east coast till the 30th. Was very very tempted to bring two kyusu, knowing I already have two here, so only brought one extra, Hokujo for roasted oolong. Sencha is a very slow pour in my antique porcelain kyusu here. Just takes patience to pour very slowly. Going with the slow flow, although your Sou I know is Fast pour! Very tempting :)

aw, too bad :lol:
I was actually surprised at how quickly this one poured compared to my other pots, probably one of the fastest pouring pots I own. Even compared to my other Sou pot this one is much faster. In some of his more recent pots I've noticed that he's changed the spout design slightly to point slightly more down(rather than up and outward) with a more flatter defined "tip" at the end. Compared to this one, my newer Sou feels like it pours about half as fast, even though it holds about 40ml more.
Slower is more elegant, I guess? :D

Perfect size for me. I would love to get it but I already bought two sou's and one zhuni pot in the past month so my wallet needs a break. If it is going to be still available in a few months, you can PM me.

thnx.

Sorry, but I had some interest in the pot earlier in the week and it looks like I'll be handing it off to a friend sometime soon.
So this one is already sold,sorry about that :(

So it's for sure sold? Just asking so we can archive it.

No, not yet sold it looks like. My friend backed out at the last minute so it's actually still available.
My mistake :D

Really mystifies me how such nice pots can remain unsold for so long!? And at a fair price.

I would have adopted if it’s shudei clay. I agree with others, it’s a good price given you don’t have to worry about currency exchange and tax if you are living in a county aside from Asia
