New Pipes: Satou: Smooth Bent Dublin  

Product Number: 002-142-0314

While the bowl, transition, and the main portion of this bent Dublin's shank hews close to the Danish influences of the Japanese school, the smooth-contoured trapezoid found at the far end of things is something of a surprise. It's definitely not Danish, and though not something I recall seeing ona Japanese pipe before, there is something about it that just seems Japanese to me. I suspect it's an abstract similarity to the main structure of certain Shinto gates, or likewise one of the less common styles of tsuba (sword hand-guards).

The real shocker on this Satou, though, is the birdseye. Don't get me wrong - the flame grain is beautiful, but that rim is just something else, and really shows off both the superb quality of the briar, and the remarkable excellence of Satou's finishing.
