Sandblasted Lovat with Mastodon (Yuki)

Product Number: 002-477-0019

Typically Japanese artisan-grade pipes are presented in designs that draw from organic themes, particularly the "balanced asymmetry" approach that is a signature of Yuki Tokutomi's father, Hiroyuki Tokutomi. Here, however, the younger Tokutomi presents us with modernist style, more likely to have been inspired by artful industrial design than anything found in nature. It's rather reminiscent of Eltang's "Tubos" designs, but with a more traditional treatment of the Billiard-style bowl, as well as a much less extreme tweaking of the bowl/shank balance. The resulting composition is clean and neat, modern without being brash about it, and to top it all of, sports not only a fine bit of ivory for contrast, but also an impressive ring grain as well.
