Japanese Estates: Hiroyuki Tokutomi Sandblasted Bent Brandy (One Snail) (2011) (Unsmoked)

Product Number: 004-007-0516

The good news is that I believe I've found the perfect Tokutomi shape. The bad news is that this is the only example of it we've ever seen. We've had a couple Toku's that came close to this little beauty, but they lacked the deeper bend and accompanying deeper transition seen in this piece, which together pull the substance into one perfectly tight-knit package, and turn the line of the underside into a smooth, continuous arc that nestles the shape as a whole. Visually, this design is a delight. In hand, it's downright charming in its compact roundness. And on top of it all, it'll hang from the jaw with ease.
