Japanese Estates: Tsuge Ikebana Smooth Volcano (037) (2007) (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-007-1121
Particularly defined by its stunning grain patterns, this Tsuge Ikebana Volcano presents an inwardly curved, tapering bowl rising from a domed heel to its rim, which is flat except for the minimal chamfer around the tobacco chamber. A crisp ridgeline extends from the end of the shank along both sides and circles the low waistline of the bowl, dividing the curvature of the lower shank and heel from the more vertically reaching upper elements. The shank is wide and low, outwardly curving to its end, where it expands briefly in a termination that well introduces the stylized, softly downturned mouthpiece. At just over five inches in length, this fabulously grained piece provides practical dimensions for a smoking instrument that may injure the self esteem of other pipes in any collection. It's presented here in unsmoked condition.- Chuck Stanion
