Smio Satou: Smooth Bent Dublin with Tsuishu

Product Number: 002-142-0337

While this stunning bent Dublin could not have been made by anyone other than Smio Satou (the number of pipe makers in the world who employ tsuishu in their work equals. one) this pipe's shape is more angular, a tad more dramatic than most of the work that I have associated with this master over the years. The rim is oval, softly domed, and resplendent with a subtle birdseye. The body features a quietly beautiful combination of straight and flame grain (the former in the majority). While carrying Satou-san's underlying theme of wa (harmony), this pipe also bears tiny hints of modernism, and the combination is most intriguing.
