Is this the classiest water filter ever?

Water-filtering pitchers are, for the most part, ugly. They're boxy, plastic contraptions that just don't do anything aesthetically pleasing. That's not the case with this beautiful pitcher.

Made of glass and steel and with a wire cage to hold lumps of Binchotan charcoal and louseki stones from Japan, it's a work of art. Not only does it clear your water of all the nasties that you don't want to drink, but it looks stunning while doing it. And yes, it's expensive at $85, but if it weans you off of buying bottles of water, it's definitely worth it.
