Japanese Estates: Tsuge Smooth Metal Black Blowfish (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-007-1055
A slow-burning flake/quick-break pipe of distinctly modern style, the Metal series Blowfish can be seen as Tsuge's equivalent to the Peterson Belgique, Tankard, and Calabash "specialty" pipes: small, light, and with just enough chamber for its intended purpose. Aside from the very different aesthetics, however, Tsuge's offering is also distinguished by the metal-clad flanks and a Don-style military mount, making it rather less delicate, and a cinch to break down for cleaning even while still warm. Unsmoked.- Chuck Stanion
