A handmade Japanese iron kettle can cost over $300. For centuries, artisans have made kettles by pouring molten iron into molds and hammering them out once they’ve cooled. These kettles often have beautiful designs but they’re only used for boiling water. You can buy a mass produced stovetop kettle for $20, so what makes these kettles unique? And why are they so expensive?

One thing I've noticed about these Japanese artisans (craftsmen, chefs, artists, etc.) is that when they talk about their experience, they speak of their decades of work and knowledge as if it were almost insignificant, like they are still beginners. Miya-san included, he says in the beginning that he's been making kettles for "only" fifty years. It's the kind of humility you only see with people who have master-level expertise. Those are the guys who know they're never going to come close to knowing everything, so they don't try to pretend to., versus the newbies who learn one or two tricks of the trade and act like they know it all.

@AliceLycoris In India we too have excellent craftsmen who churn out tea kettles that are far cheaper than the 300$. Yet they too last a couple of generations. I still think paying 300$is still a fad. Japanese products are often hyped up .

@Ravindran Sundaram : Not true. The kettles are as much of an art and as aesthetic as a functional product. And while $300 may seem expensive, this expense is meant to be paid once. Meaning a quality tea kettle will last more than one or two or more life times. This unlike most products today that you will need to buy several of over a single lifetime and end up spending that $300 anyway. People also want new, so heirlooms, even in perfect working order, are increasingly junked. This isn't a trait of any craftsman to create something lasting. The depth of tea culture must also be considered. And for the "best" tea, a quality kettle and pot are nearly priceless. This does not mean tea can not be drunk nor appreciated from a common bucket nor is having a fine kettle and pot superior, they are just experiences in their own right. The BEST tea is the tea one can drink.

There are many factors to consider, but I could be due at least in part to Buddhist influences. The general idea is to not brag or to not declare one self superior to another, because there may be something they can do that one, even as a Master of something, can not. There is also the concept of the universal "Beginners Mind" where no matter how much of a Master one is there is always somewhere they could be humbled as a beginner. And as such, while there is a hierarchy, if a beginner happens to be wiser than a master, the master should listen to the beginner. One receives wisdom not because of someone's status or other label, but because what is said is wise. I do see the cynical comments, but acting for the self is not necessarily a bad thing.

I think I was reading that a lot of Japanese restaurants do this now too with the phrase "ichigen-sama okotowari" which means they refuse first-time customers unless another regular brings them, which on the one hand if you want to look at it in the most negative way possible it's snobbish gatekeeping, but it also reflects crafts like this were they're trying to preserve a certain style of cuisine or tradition (and they're sick of people, a lot of the time foreigners, making bookings and then showing up late or flaking) and they don't need, to put it crudely, big American burgerdollar, because their regulars more than pay for what they do, it's more about the principles.

I love the part where he explains they make modern tools and items too. He's not just a craftsman or manufacturer, they're also inventors and designers. The many other kettle iterations being showcased and the stacks of papers in his office really shows that hidden layer of effort and hours poured into producing something new.

I love how Japanese artisans take their craft so seriously and how certain districts are known for a specific product. There is a real love and respect for not only the product, but more importantly the process. You can often tell that the masters are genuinely concerned that no one will learn from them and that the craft will die out with the modernization of the world. It might seem cliché, but what the world really needs is to slow down a little and take the time to appreciate how important these works art actually are.

When I was in in Japan a few years ago I went into a shop that had shelves full of different styles of these kettles. SO many of they were amazing. I wanted to get a couple to bring back to NY with me but I stood there and couldn't decide which ones I wanted. Of course I had narrowed it down to under $1000 each but there were still a lot. I ended up back in the hotel unable to decide. A few days later I returned home and still regret not getting them.

I found the sand floor's history to be more interesting than the kettle itself. Because, unlike the kettle that is sold and probably never seen again, that sand has been touched by generations of their family. It's closer to their lifeblood than the iron melted down to make the kettle pots.

When he talked about people being happy when they used his kettle, I understand him. I am a craftsman and when I finish my work, how I feel about what I’ve done depends a lot on whether the people I am working for are happy, satisfied with what they have.

Love this story, this is why I always say to people that "Quality over Quantity" always Wins!! This is a perfect example, anyone can replicate or copy your creation or style as an artist but when your work is original & authentic and you're the creator there's only one person that creates the Legendary Kettle in the world and that's Nobuho Miya from Kamasada and that's priceless!! As an artist it's important that you create your own style because that's what will separate you from the rest!!!

I’d really like to see a video on the wooden hair brushes made by the Japanese brand Chidoriya, they’re handcrafted brushes made completely of a specific type of wood and every brush takes years to make, 3 years just to dry out the wood before the brush is even made. They have a brush that is more like a comb with two rows of bristles that sells for around $86, their full sized brush with four rows of bristles that sells for around $125, and then a middle with with three rows of bristles that sells for around $94.

It's interesting to know that those are used only to boil water and not to brew tea, that would be brewed in a separate teapot, while the "knock-offs" are enameled to use as a tea pot while retaining the Japanese-esque visual aspect of the kettle.

This was a beautiful story and excellent video for me. A tea kettle of $300 to $400 to $2,000 may seem expensive, but the purchaser -- actually a patron of the arts -- is getting a one-of-a-kind, usable piece of art along the same lines as a Stradivarius violin. This man is a master-craftsman and an artist and, if the patron is wise, it adds something special to "tea-time" -- something that has already been generations in the making of it before it even got to you -- and something special that can be passed down through the generations of your own family. Among the many 'artsy' things I do, is wrought-iron. One of the things I make is a very unique and effective fly-swatter. I call it the "Die Bastard!" and that's what it makes flies do. I might make 100 of them one year, I might only make 25 or I might make 500. I hold the patent, so I make as many as I want and that's the number that is available to the world for that year. I make them to last at least 100 years, and I'm pretty sure that with just minimal care, they'll easily last 500 years or more. I'm not trying to sell fly-swatters here. I'm trying to make a point and get people to understand that the most precious things are those things made by someone's hands -- especially those things made by the hands of an artist-craftsman who was a master of his or her own trade many, many years ago. The guy who uses one of my doo-hickeys 300 years from now in his flying saucer is gonna' be holding it by the same handle that was shaped in my hands centuries ago. I'm not a big 'tea-drinker' (beer an' rum's me favorites) but I'm thinkin' of buyin' a $400 tea-pot just for the experience of enjoying the use of it and passing it down in my family. (I know. I shouldn't be so damned cheap.)

Many years ago we had a Japanese exchange student stay at out home. Take in mind he was almost 70 years old. He was retired and wanted to learn English. From the 2 months he stayed at our home. He told me of the story about iron a tea pot that he had received from his great grandfather. Hand made well over 100 years ago. He said that it still made the best tasting tea. Yes it may cost 500$ today. But what a story that will be when your great grandchildren 100 years from now will be drinking out of the same tea pot. Quality exceeds quantity. Thanks for the video.

​@Y E E T O_ W O M B A T _"by admitting foreign presence is part of the causation factor of young, disenfranchise Europeans."_ Sorry, no. I've stated in the first comment, and stressed in the second, that it is an _effect_ of another cause. Cause and effect are linked but absolutely not the same. And a further difference you seem to not see is: What you capitulate to doesn't have to be the same thing that forces/encourages the capitulation. We have three Parties A, B and C. A capitulates *to* B. But not because of B itself, but rather because of C. Now, B and C _can_ be the same, but they don't universally have to. And so far only A (we) and B ("foreign hordes") were mentioned. Further a C was implied ("we were made to"; by who?), but not further detailled. Could be B, could be something else. You assumed he meant it's B. And maybe you are right in assuming that, maybe he thinks that. But it's not written there. If you don't understand these points, I am not willing to put any more time into this. You don't have to agree, but you should at least understand, otherwise you are discussing with points the other party is not making and based on assumptions you make about the other party. Have a nice day and weekend.

Branching out and making other iron cookware with the same level of skill and quality, that also matches the kettle aesthetic is a very smart move. Likely someone with the money to get a 1k kettle probably would be interested in matching cookware. And it allows the practice to continue!

They bring up a very important point in regards to not only work ethic, but being proud of the work you produce as well. I firmly believe they are correct in claiming that any work that is uninteresting results in an uninteresting product as well. The Japanese artisans really have a way of attaining mastery in every aspect of their profession and I respect that.

Isaiah C
Isaiah C 13 วันที่ผ่านมา
Pick up your cross and follow Jesus! The world is quickly headed for destruction, and sooner or later you will have to sit at the judgement seat and give an account for your actions. Belief in messiah alone is not enough to grant you salvation - Matthew 7:21-23, John 3:3, John 3:36 (ESV is the best translation for John 3:36). Call on the name of Jesus and pray for Him to intervene in your life! - Revelation 3:20. Contemplate how the Roman Empire fulfilled the role of the beast from the sea in Revelation 13. Revelation 17 confirms that it is in fact Rome. From this we can conclude that A) Jesus is the Son of God and can predict the future or make it happen, B) The world leaders/nations/governments etc have been conspiring together for the last 3000+ years going back to Babylon and before, C) History as we know it is fake. You don't really need to speculate once you start a relationship with God tho. Can't get a response from God? Fasting can help increase your perception and prayer can help initiate events. God will ignore you if your prayer does not align with His purpose (James 4:3) or if you are approaching Him when "unclean" (Isaiah 1:15, Isaiah 59:2, Micah 3:4). Stop eating food sacrificed to idols (McDonald's, Wendy's etc) stop glorifying yourself on social media or making other images of yourself (Second Commandment), stop gossiping about other people, stop watching obscene content etc and you should get a response. Have a blessed day!

@lynth These kettles have probably only been for the rich. Now the poor can own something similar at a fraction of the price. What a travesty.

This reminds me of my 2 years in an iron foundry making wood stove doors and other items ordered to be made out of different metals. I loved this job and learned a lot about iron, steel,copper, brass, and cast iron too. What a cool video and a very interesting way to still make items with old way hands. TY~

I admire how they dedicated themselves to their craftsmanship, dot to dot, line to line. They create art that don’t just hanging on the wall. However, their is always a bit sadness with this. You work hard on it, you sell it expensive; the buyer value your work so they recon it is expensive; since it is expensive, it is meant to be for less buyers, which in turn generates less profit. To solve this, you either make it more expensive to make more profit per product, which hurts business even more; or you lower the price to create more selling volume, which you hurt yourself, and art.

They are so beautiful. It is obvious each one is made with deep care. The craftsman respects the piece as if it deserves his effort not just for the customer but for the pot, itself. The piece comes alive in his hands.

I was a regular pan user in my daily life, one day I won a hgh quality cast iron set at work and decided to give it a try. Boy.. the flavor profile is completely different, it has what the chinese call "Wok Wei" or spirit of the pan, which regular pans don't provide.

Isaiah C
Isaiah C 13 วันที่ผ่านมา
Pick up your cross and follow Jesus! The world is quickly headed for destruction, and sooner or later you will have to sit at the judgement seat and give an account for your actions. Belief in messiah alone is not enough to grant you salvation - Matthew 7:21-23, John 3:3, John 3:36 (ESV is the best translation for John 3:36). Call on the name of Jesus and pray for Him to intervene in your life! - Revelation 3:20. Contemplate how the Roman Empire fulfilled the role of the beast from the sea in Revelation 13. Revelation 17 confirms that it is in fact Rome. From this we can conclude that A) Jesus is the Son of God and can predict the future or make it happen, B) The world leaders/nations/governments etc have been conspiring together for the last 3000+ years going back to Babylon and before, C) History as we know it is fake. You don't really need to speculate once you start a relationship with God tho. Can't get a response from God? Fasting can help increase your perception and prayer can help initiate events. God will ignore you if your prayer does not align with His purpose (James 4:3) or if you are approaching Him when "unclean" (Isaiah 1:15, Isaiah 59:2, Micah 3:4). Stop eating food sacrificed to idols (McDonald's, Wendy's etc) stop glorifying yourself on social media or making other images of yourself (Second Commandment), stop gossiping about other people, stop watching obscene content etc and you should get a response. Have a blessed day!

Well seeing it is made of iron, I imagine a very long time as long as it is kept properly. I mean, we still have well preserved relics made from iron dating thousands of years. And also cooking utensils like cast iron skillets which last many decades. So this probably could last as long as you care for it

i own two, a blue chinese reproduction with the enameled insides for brewing tea in the pot, and my beloved japanese "flawed seconds" pot i was fortunate enough to find at a thrift store many years ago with the bare metal insides. the dimpling on one small tiny side spot of the pot is ground down almost smooth (probably from a tiny flaw in the mold at the time of casting) it's my favorite, even with the flaw, and does a great job of heating water quickly over a stove on low heat, and keeping that heat longer than my modern stainless steel teapot. my wishlist hunt is to find a bigger version with larger water capacity.

5:33 An oxidized layer is rust. The type they are forming by heating is a stable form of it that does not spread and eat away at the rest of the metal though. The oil layer they bake on later is what actually does most of the preserving.

I love these kind of products, precious heirlooms worth passing on. In contrast to todays "buy and throw away in 1-5 years". Even if I cannot understand why something as mundane as a water kettle can be inflated to this level. But it is probably Japanese culture giving full dedication to whatever it is you do. So as long as they find their customers, it is great!

My grandma used to have a cattle made of iron ... outside was enamel, inside always raw. I never thought about it, but when the old one was done she specificly asked for one with that property. The once made in europe aren't as nice looking as these ones but now I understand why People love them so much. I might buy one for myself :D

In 1973, when I started spending my summers at the Canadian border where iron mills existed a hundred years earlier, I learned to drink right out of the lake. The water was brown with rust from those old iron mills, and it tasted very different from the tap water I was used to in Chicago. I soon got used to it, and then started preferring it. It looked muddy but it tasted crisp and clean. I can see why boiling water in untreated iron is preferred. Also, women in that area of Canada didn't have hypothyroid problems because of all that iron they were drinking.
