Estate Pipes: Japanese Estate: Hiroyuki Tokutomi Partially Sandblasted Blowfish (One Snail) (2006)  

Product Number: 004-007-0471

Most artisans have tried their hand at the Blowfish, some make it one of their specialties, but few have mastered it the way Hiroyuki Tokutomi has. This example is one of his most lively and vivid, stylistically, with sharp, sweeping lines everywhere, energetic, yet perfectly controlled flourishes accenting both bowl and shank, and a finish that pairs a dusky, exotic bengal stain with contrasting sections of black sandblast. The management of line and form is precise, the lines clean, and despite the artistic nature of the shape, this briar remains plenty comfortable in hand. Tokutomi's handling of the cross grain and birdseye is every bit as expert, both being magnificently arranged and displayed to the best effect.
