Japanese Estates: Tsuge Ikebana Smooth Bent Brandy (G) (132) (2002)

Product Number: 004-007-0567

Tsuge's Ikebanas follow an alphabet-ascending grading system, topping off at... we're not really sure. Once upon a time the highest known was a "V", but some years back Tsuge pared the system back. To complicate things, rarity escalates greatly past a certain point. By example, we've seen, new from the Ikebana workshop, only nineteen "G" stamped briars, eleven "H"s, but two "I"s and three "J"s, and absolutely zero "K"s. As such, a "G" like this beautifully shaped and grained bent Brandy is right near the edge - one of the highest grades even those of us who in thousands upon thousands of new and estate pipes annually can expect to see more than once every few years.
