Tsuge: Kaga Sandblasted (901) (9mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-099-10612
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 "901" is a fine example of the series and a rather pocket-friendly take on the classic bent Brandy. It features a squat, curvaceous bowl that's paired to an upturned shank and a demurely curved saddle stem — all presented here in a crisp, dark sandblast, providing plenty of visual and tactile appeal.--Davin Hylton
