Yuki Tokutomi: Sandblasted Bent Dublin (Yuki)
Product Number: 002-477-0016
As is often the case with Tokutomi Pipe Company pieces, each a product of cooperation between husband, wife, and daughter, this bent Dublin presents a more conservative (compared to much of Hiroyuki's independent work), sturdy, but still distinguishably Japanese design. The bowl is sturdily proportioned, the transition and shank muscular, yet the flow throughout remains gracefully smooth and natural. There was no slouching when it came to the briar itself either - the light-depth, semi-gloss black sandblast has brought out quite a respectable showing of ring-grain banding the bowl from top to bottom.
