Japanese Estates: Tsuge Ikebana Smooth Bent Billiard (CD) (203) (2005) (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-007-0961
Though they have since abandoned their grading system, Tsuge Ikebana pipes used to be judged on a scale of "A" to "G," meaning you can expect this fairly rarefied "CD" to have a seriously impressive natural display of feathery flame and birdseye, which it just so happens to do, highlighted by a warm, tasteful stain. It's also on the larger end of the workshop's shaping spectrum too, with a generous form on par with many house pipes I've encountered, and a capacious chamber to boot. It's unsmoked, as well.- Daniel Bumgardner
