Tsuge: Smooth Billiard with Bamboo
Product Number: 002-099-8419
In the past, I have been startled by the number of pipe smokers who have yet to try a briar with a bamboo shank. I think if you have not, then you are truly missing out. Aside from the fact that bamboo looks naturalistic and flat-out gnarly, it actually has a few functional benefits as bamboo is lightweight and very strong. Over many years of enjoyment, it will also darken a bit and develop a nice patina. Whether you're looking to try your first bamboo, or simply wish to add another to your collection, the Tsuge Bamboo series simply cannot be beat for the money.- Shane Ireland
