Tsuge: 80th Anniversary Sandblasted Rhodesian Reverse Calabash No. 42 (2016) (9mm)
Product Number: 002-099-7635
To commemorate their 80th anniversary in 2016, Tsuge crafted a limited-edition line to celebrate the major milestone. Consisting of a singular shape, the esteemed Japanese workshop fashioned a striking Rhodesian that's a perfect blend of stunning aesthetics and practical features. Bright metal adorns the rim, providing protection against any darkening or charring and is easily removable. Additional metal graces the shank-end, offering flashy contrast against the rest of the piece's jet-black color palette. The muscular shank continues the bowl's heartiness and contains reverse Calabash engineering within, offering an expansive cooling chamber within. The sandblasted finish is impressive as well, displaying a fascinating array of ring grain that radiates from the heel and creeps up the bowl's flanks before meeting the metal rim. It's a gorgeous design from the venerated workshop and is a brilliant way to their continue legacy.- Jeffery Sitts
