Ichi Kitahara: Sandblasted Lovat with Boxwood

Product Number: 002-340-0115

It is rare to see a design such as this from Ichi Kitahara. Being an avid flake smoker and generally gravitating towards compact briars (traditional shaping is a plus), I find myself more excited about (and tempted to actually smoke) this delicately sandblasted fireplug. Light as a feather and equipped with an exceedingly comfortable saddle stem, clenching this pipe in the teeth causes about as much strain as clenching a plastic drinking straw. The proportions are spot-on and I always appreciate a minimalist approach to accents and finish. The polished rim is an added bonus and the flake smoker will be able to coax a lot of flavor and duration from this chamber.
