Japanese Estates: Tsuge Super Smooth Acorn (205)
Product Number: 004-007-1010
The Japanese school of shaping often shows influence from the Danish design aesthetic. Given the emphasis on relaxed, graceful, and minimalist composition, I suppose it is little surprise that Japanese pipemakers would adopt so much design language from the Danish — not to mention, of course, that some of the best-known Japanese artisan pipemakers have studied under Danes. The influence is rarely more evident than it is here, in a Tsuge Acorn — the underlying Billiard form could readily pass as a reinterpreted classic English shape from an older Danish factory.- Kaz Walters
