[Chobundo's Arare Tetsubin has been added]
This is a traditional tetsubin with lacquer baked onto the cast surface. The surface is adorned with a beautiful "arare" pattern, which is reminiscent of hail. Arare is said to depict the scenery of moisture in the clouds transforming into white ice particles and falling to the ground. By adding the arare pattern, it increases the tetsubin's surface area, resulting in better heat retention. The knob on the lid is designed in the shape of an eggplant. In Japanese, "eggplant" is pronounced as "nasu," which sounds similar to the word for "to accomplish" or "to achieve." So, it carries the auspicious meaning of "accomplishing great things." With its simple and practical design, you can enjoy using this tetsubin for a long time, forming a lasting attachment to it.
