New Pipes: Satou: Smooth Bent Brandy with Bamboo and Tsuishu  

Product Number: 002-142-0329

This is not a particularly light or slender pipe - in fact it's rather large, dwarfing my old Group 5 Dunhill. And yet, the poise and balance struck between the angle of the bamboo shank and the forward thrust of the bowl, the clean, precise taper towards the rim, and the easy, fluid motion of the line which borders and defines the rounded underside all make for a composition that's just elegant. It's the kind of shape that shows a pipemaker has given a lot of thought to the specifics of line and arrangement because it works, and because it's the kind of shape that couldn't work if they had not - there's just too much going on to merely strike it lucky. Fittingly, Smio chose to accent this particular piece with Tsuishu, a material which, like this pipe, takes a great deal of patience to create in the traditional manner.
