Tsuge: Sandblasted Bent Billiard with Bamboo (9mm)
Product Number: 002-099-8573
Though originally popularized as a means of saving briar during and immediately following WWII, the bamboo extension has since become a thing of high-end artisanal pipes, and generally more expensive factory-made lines. Bamboo extensions quite simply require more work to do right, shanks having to be individually tweaked to match the bamboo, and the bamboo itself requiring its own selection process. Tsuge, however, manages to provide their Bamboo series pipes at a surprisingly modest asking price, and without cutting corners.- Andrew Wike
