Kukan Chuzo has the workshop located in Mizusawa that Nambu tekki has been thriving.
The representative of the company "Hisao Iwashimizu". He has been making simble but modern Nambu Tekki that fit our modern life comfortably.

He uses Kinari method to exploit the true look, texture and color that iron originally has. Kinari is an traditional technic for production models. The way is to make an model by pressing sand and casting iron into it. The uniqueness of iron itself is teased out by the method. And also the texture of iron is enhanced by its simple look without unnecessary decorations.

What's unique of this iron pot Egg is its adorable shape.The surface finished by the technic called "Yakihada-migaki" is elegant and the beauty of  iron is fully teased out.

What's unique of this iron pot Moon is its shape like sphere is squashed tightly. The body and handle are quite well-balanced on its design. And angular-designed handle oni the lid gives you modern impression.

*Please do not wash inside of the nambu iron pots. The pot inside would gradually be whitish-fureed when boiled
*Please do not remove the whitish-fur. It functions as rustproof and it adds perticular sweetness makes tea/water taste better.
*When the pot inside gets rust heavily, please put a couple of used tea bags and boil water without a lid. It'd be enough if you don't feel metallic flavor after doing it a couple of times
*Complete removal of rust once occured is not possible.
