Japanese Estates: Ichi Kitahara Smooth Blowfish (2014) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-007-0641
"All roads lead to Rome", or in the case of this wickedly modernist Blowfish, Japan. Ichi Kitahara has here created a strikingly architectural and complex form, using five distinct bevels along the shank, all of which merge to either form or directly contribute to a massive center bevel on the body. There is some minor rim darkening, and the finish is slightly uneven in places, but if you like your fugus edgy and full of attitude, this might well be your pipe.
