Tsuge: Sandblasted Metal Gold Tankard
Product Number: 002-099-4537
More than anything, I hate using the word "cool" in any form, conversationally and in literary descriptions, but, in this case, it's unavoidable when talking about the look of this pipe. I really love the... "cool" new direction Tsuge is taking, a stylistic mixture of different movements and ideas, but purely and maturely realized. To me, the Metal Tankard falls somewhere between a Wagnerian Valkyrie, the steam punk anime Full Metal Alchemist, and the Chrysler building, the pinnacle of the Art Deco movement.
