Tsuge: The Roulette Smooth Tankard

Product Number: 002-099-4602

This Tsuge design, odd as it may sound, reminds of a rifle. More specifically, the AR-7 Explorer, a slender .22 caliber carbine that can be broken down and stored in its own buttstock. While it was designed with a strict emphasis on minimalist functionality, being intended for use by backpackers and bush or military pilots who may find themselves lost in the wild, the AR-7 actually turned out with unique sort of elegance to its lines and proportions. It also happens to look kind of like an early 20th-century comic book ray-gun. As for this Tsuge, we find in it slender style as well, and Art Deco flavor of design, and to top it all off, with a military mount and a threaded bowl (mounted over a condensation chamber), it, too, can break down into one very small bundle.
