Estate Pipes: Japanese Estate: Hiroyuki Tokutomi Smooth Bent Dublin with Mastodon Ivory (One Snail) (2009)  

Product Number: 004-007-0528

Creations from Huroyuki Tokutomi transcend cultural style, and move into the realm of a universally recognized beauty, tapping into what it means to truly be human - the beauty of our trials and tribulations shown brightly through the asymmtricality of the briar, our triumphs by the light of a successfully finished pipe. I personally have never met Tokutomi, but when I picked up this bent Dublin, I felt that somehow I was in correspondence with the master; his undeniable drive for perfection is made abundantly clear in every facet and nuance: from the way the stem slightly lifts with a such elegant leisure, as too recall Michelangelo's Adam in The Creation of Man, or the cracks of plateau breaking the perfectly circular rim teeming with birdseye, perhaps a disease within.
