Tsuge: Smooth Metal Black Blowfish
Product Number: 002-099-4692
As striking as the Tsuge Metal and Thunderstorm series designs are overall, this little Art Deco interpretation of the Blowfish has to be the most unusual of the bunch. This is definitely intended as a pocket pipe - short, handy, and with a dainty little chamber ideal for either quick cigarette-break length smokes, or a bit of slow-burning folded flake. However, while most briars made with a concept like that in mind are quite spindly and delicate in design, this Tsuge keeps plenty of substance to its briar, in a shape that sits very stably, and then, just for good measure, clads it in metal on both flanks and gives you a military mount in place of a shank.
