New UnSmoked. A superb example of Tsuge free form totally hand made top grade Ikebana. The keel element emphasizes and compliments what is in essence a free form bent Billiard. Same as the furled end shank motif, that is repeated in the stem. Interestingly the shank furl is carved so that its is on a slant. These give the pipe its undoubted Japanese origin and expression.
This is a large pipe with a certain Danish influence of having a keel. The keel - but then again both Danes and Japanese are sea peoples, so who knows which first incorporated the symbol of the keel in design.
Tsuge Made in Japan in circle. Inside circle 018 underneath 99.
