Rusticated Bent Dublin with Bamboo

Product Number: 002-340-0113

Ok, color me stunned. Though, broadly speaking, much of Ichi Kitahara’s work would fall into something of a nature inspired, sculptural motif, he does make occasional forays into the world of Zen Moderne, and when he does, more often than not it will appear in a Dublin. When I first saw this wicked bamboo Dublin, Takeo Arita (whose shapes I have personally held as the finest representations of ZM ever executed in briar) immediately came to mind. While Ichi makes no overt attempt to evoke “the spirit of the machine”, in Arita fashion, there is an almost CAD efficiency and cleanliness of line at play here. Whether you picture it in its initial wind tunnel evaluations, or streaking over hard-packed desert on afterburner, Kitahara has created a perfect study of implied motion in the speeder-Dublin, and the fact that he was able do so with a bamboo ferrule I find pleasantly staggering. Utilizing the ever-reliable, index finger crook, with the middle finger gently encircling that tear drop point, this baby is a joy in the hand; a delight that’s further enhanced by a weight of just 31 grams.
