Tsuge: Thunderstorm Black Tankard

Product Number: 002-099-4687

Featuring a unique, but tastefully executed aesthetic, the pipes of Tsuge's Metal and Thunderstorm lines offer a sound combination of Art Deco style and functional design. In the Thunderstorm Tankard's case, that means a metal guard on the rim, to protect against charring, a clean, smart shape that sits just fine, and a military mount tucked right up against the bowl, which makes this one both a pinch to break down even when hot, and keeps it very compact when disassembled - all features shared with the Metal Tankard design. Where things differ, we find that the Thunderstorm sports a more modestly-sized chamber, narrow but still of good depth, a shorter overall height, making it a bit better adapted for sticking into a pocket, and, of course, the main feature - a metal sleeve covering the bowl, which can be slid upward to serve as a 285-degree windscreen.
