Sandblasted Billiard with Bamboo

Product Number: 002-142-0209

Wabi sabi is a principle that serves as a foundation for the entire pantheon of of the traditional Japanese aesthetic. In part, the concept finds appreciation for the the quiet, the harmonious, and forms the bedrock for most all of Smio Satou's marvelous creations. Sitting in a tray, there is no single element that leaps up at you. As your gaze softens, you realize this is some of the finest sandblasted grain to ever grace a pipe. The shape could not be augmented, nor reduced without lessening the composition. Bamboo is flawless, the hand carved bit is perfect. With Satou-sans attention to engineering and detail, close examination of the interior works of the pipe causes one to hold his breath. It is at about this point a quiet smile begins and a quiet companionship is formed. This is "Satou".
