Smooth Cherrywood with Bamboo

Product Number: 002-654-0005

7.5" in length and a weight of just 31g (roughly the same as one AA battery) - if the benefits of a bamboo ferrule aren't obvious - the beauty which a perfect employment lends to a composition certainly is. Evocative of Satou, but presenting a daring, dynamic curvature of bowl which would be alien to the Japanese legend's manner, this lively gesture allows this pipe to sit, as well as elevate the totality to one of the finest examples of Shinto-inspired organicism I have ever encountered.

Referring to the curl of the bowl as "daring, dramatic", while accurate, doesn't seem to play that out way when this briar is in the sitting posture (picture #5). While we all can admire the breathtaking forms which nature regularly puts out for display, would we refer to the sweeping outline of an ancient ocean side Pine as anything other than poignant? Much in the same case, this Cherrywood's bowl curl, soaring ferrule and shank, indeed, every aspect of the Zhan speaks of harmony, rendering any active adjectives pointless. Highly recommended.
