I love this set, however 2nd set also had a broken sake cup. Not going to return again, will just live with 3 cups?
Il est pratique et super jolie avec son look noir mat et lustré. Moi je l'adore et je l'expose fièrement dans mon salon!
my boyfriend is very picky and he loved these good quality
Looks really nice. Not quite the deep black I was expecting from the pictures, more of a very dark grey (almost a matte black, but not quite). The decanter is roughly 190mm tall (about 7.5 inches).

This arrived sooner than expected and the sake set far exceeded my expectations. It is solid and well designed. The obsidian around the bottom adds a unique but understated elegance that I have not seen in other sake sets. The heft, weight and texture are solid. The carafe is a good solid 15oz much more than the typical 8oz sake bottle making suitable for 4 people to have 2 pours or 2 people 4 pours. The only thing I am hesitant to do it put this into a hot water bath which is one of the typical means of heating up sake prior to serving. However this does not in anyway detract from the overall design or character of this magnificent sake set!
Beautiful design. High quailty ceramic. I've gotten a lot of compliments for it. But the packaging is terrible. Had to order two sets (both broken) just to make one set that wasn't cracked, chipped or flat out broken. Wish seller or Amazon packaged it better.
I was attracted to the photo of the attractive, black, sleek lines of this set, specially since we use black as accent pieces with our dinnerware. (Personally I'm not keen on those usually ornate/hand-painted other sake sets.) This set is PERFECT!!!!!! The glossy black on the flat black finish makes the set look elegant, but subdued. The cups are a perfect size for sake.
Awesome design and craftsmanship.
One of the fours sake cups was broken on arrival but I promptly received a replacement shipment. This set is a great quality set with a beautiful contemporary style. A nice modern take on the traditional sake set.
