Yuki Tokutomi: Sandblasted Billiard Nosewarmer
Product Number: 002-477-0028
Though a bit longer than the Nosewarmer it shares the same update with, this is still readily the smaller of the two Tokutomi Pipe Company briars. Though light as breeze and quite trim, it does actually pack a fair amount of chamber; this isn't just a folded-flake pipe. From the pipemaker's perspective, I can imagine classic shapes become very challenging when working in such diminutive proportions, but Yuki's execution here is spot-on, and the light sandblast does a sound job of both bringing out a pleasing texture and keeping the lines of this briar well preserved.
