Tatsuo Tajima Yūri-kinsai # 18


This is Tatu's long shanked Japanese Volcano. A defined sandblast with striated grain. The stain is rich deep black with a some Yūri-kinsai - lacquer with real gold leaf work that contrasts well with the moss green/black stem.  The gold leaf sparingly applied gives the pipe shimmer as light hits it from different angles. An superb example of Japanese pipe aesthetics.

The walls are surprising thick for a pipe of this size & with its long shank ensures that it delivers a cool smoke. Sitter.
