New Pipes: Tsuge: Ichirin Sandblasted Bamboo Dublin with Silver  

Product Number: 002-099-4616

According to Google Translate, "Ichirin" means "one wheel". According to Ryota, who just happened to be visiting us, what it actually means (in context) is "one flower". Which of course makes far more sense when you look at the design, given its long, slender "stalk" and petite blossom of a bowl. Quite a few of you will no doubt recognize its historical inspiration: the traditional Japanese kiseru, a delicately proportioned brass pipe, the shaping of which reflected both the costliness of tobacco during the period of its development, and the extra-fine shag cut that was then common in Japan. Back then, one would tuck a little wad of this extra-fine cut ribbon into your kiseru, enjoy a few puffs (holding it by the stem), and then repeat. This modern, briar-and-bamboo reinterpretation sports thicker walls, and of course being made out briar much more agreeable when held by the bowl. Overall it makes for an elegant number perfect for a pinch of folded flake, or for trying out fine ribbons in the traditional manner.
