The Tokutomi Pipe Company was started by Hiroyuki Tokutomi in 2012. Everyone working on these pipes is a Tokutomi; master carver Hiroyuki, his wife Kazue, and daughter Yuki. Pieces are worked on by all three family members, with Hiroyuki doing the majority of the technical work (drilling and such), while his wife and daughter do the majority of other shaping, sanding, and detail work. The shapes are mostly simple classics with lovely Japanese aesthetic, and some are fit with handcut or highly-modified preform stems from vulcanite. These pipes are sold in Japanese tobacco shops, and we are very happy to be able to offer them for you here on Smokingpipes.com.
