Tsuge: Tokyo Smooth Cherrywood with Bamboo (553)

Product Number: 002-099-4051

Although Tsuge's '553' bears an uncanny resemblance to their '552' it's worth pointing out that this Cherrywood is canted so far forward from its base that it can afford a shank transition from the bowl at a right angle, unlike their '552' (or your traditional Cherrywood, for that matter). This makes for a rather striking, sleek composition, made all the more rich with a bamboo shank (indicative of the Tokyo line) and a dusky walnut stain.
