Hiroyuki Tokutomi Smooth Dublin (2003)

Product Number: 004-007-0501

This is what you might call one of Tokutomi's more "designed" shapes; it possesses signs of his signature balanced asymmetry in both the bowl and the shank (tweaking the plane of the rim and the cross-section of the latter), yet the overall impression is more that of a piece of modern sculpture than an emulation of some form found in nature. In profile it actually reminds me of the traditional Japanese kiseru pipes, though admittedly they may largely just be an effect of the arrow-straight, very trim shank and stem. The bowl is of course much broader than that of any kiseru, though, which aside from allowing for a chamber suited to common tobacco cuts (rather than the very finely shredded sort kiseru were designed for), also makes all the more room for the briar's beautiful flame grain.
