Tsuge: Kaga Smooth (904) (9mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-099-10471
A storied marque and one of Japan's leading pipe manufacturers, Tsuge produces a wide array of shapes, many of which showcase a pronounced Danish influence. Tsuge's Kaga series began in the 1980s and was inspired by Jørn Micke's craftsmanship. The pipes in the series are united by a unique tenon system that looks like a military mount but is otherwise a standard tenon-and-mortise arrangement. This "904" is a fine example of the series and a rather pocket-friendly take on the classic bent Egg. It features a supple, curvaceous bowl that's paired to an upturned shank and a demurely curved saddle stem — all presented here in a smooth, honey-blonde finish for vivid grain definition.--Davin Hylton
