Tsuge Ikebana: Partially Sandblasted Bent Dublin (Kikuchi) (B)
Product Number: 002-623-4422
Wow! (Am I right?) This Grade 'B' Ikebana, partially sandblasted bent Dublin, save for a tiny difference in the transition of the shank onto the bowl, could be a poster-child, championing the glories of the Danish shaping revolution. The staggering quality and coverage of the sandblasted grain almost defies description (thank god for pictures), and take a look at all the sweet birdseye that you will enjoy from the smoker's perspective. In our brave, new pipe world, wherein most new carvers learn their art in a heavily auto-didactic manner, is there still a place for the traditional, long-term Master/student relationship? I believe the new Ikebanas have answered with a thunderous, "Yes!"--R. 'Bear' Graves
