The pot holds 260ml.
In good condition.
*Please don't wash wood handle.
How to use:
Pour shochu and water (1:1) in kurojoka and leave it for 1 day.
Put Kurojoka on fire (direct fire is fine) and warm it very slowly (don't boil).
Shochu will taste very mild and more flavor will come out.
This is how people in Satsuma have treated guests for hundreds of years.
