Hishaku (柄杓)

This is a long bamboo ladle with a nodule in the approximate center of the handle. It is used to pour hot water into the tea bowl from the iron pot (kama) and to transfer cold water from the fresh water container to the iron pot when required. A tetsubin does not require the use of a hishaku. Different styles are used for different ceremonies and in different seasons.

    Nice capture my friend.
    Your stream is a great find, the artistic ability you have is beyond amazing, the different realms of life you explore is amazing as well.
    Keep up the good work, you're an inspiration to many others and not just me, I'd assume (:
