New Pipes: Ichi Kitahara: Smooth Acorn with Bamboo  

Product Number: 002-340-0098

Though clearly the final results of this Ichi Kitahara composition are of a smoothly organic, Japanese-school style, the underling lay-out was, I would guess, based off of the old the Cavalier classic shape. And that's a good thing; I've always liked the look of the Cavalier's lay-out, with its long, deeply-bent shank and stem, pronounced bowl, and projecting spur serving as a follow-through. In fact, the main reason why there isn't one in my own personal rotation is that I've found most of them to be downright fiddly in hand, a consequence of the very same shaping aspects I've admired from an aesthetic perspective. Well, Ichi was apparently having none of that - this long-shanked, deeply-bent Acorn proves just natural. The fuller, smoothly contoured bowl gives you plenty to wrap your fingers about, and the fine little spur at the underside just barely hints at its presence - enough to provide a bit of pleasing tactile contrast to the soft curvaceousness above, but no more.
