Smooth Wave

Product Number: 002-340-0105

From ‘Breaking’ (plunging/spilling) to ‘Kelvin’ right on to ‘Tsunami’, there are 15 official oceanic wave classifications (You’ll thank me, should you ever find yourself on “Jeopardy”). Given the delightful breadth of nuances we have observed in Ichi’s executions of his signature shape, the number of sub classifications of his ‘Wave’ may well have outstripped the NOOA groupings by now.

Ichi continues to explore the possibilities that lie within on his signature "Wave", a shape that is already on the cutting edge of pipe shaping. While Kitahara-san has added (very) subtle hints of a whirlpool to this shape in the past, the Wave now in front of you has moved close to the event horizon of a Vortex. Adding to the fascination, the travel of the shank pushes further up/to the right than it does on the opposite side, mimicking the movement of a warmer oceanic current upon meeting its colder counterpoint (one of the many possible causes of a whirlpool/vortex). Am I over thinking this to death? Probably, but cool pipes often have that effect on me.
