Founded by Kyoichiro Tsuge, and currently run by master pipe crafter Kazuhiro Fakudo, Tsuge pipes are the most well-renowned pipes from Japan. A unique combination of Danish and Japanese designs lend these tobacco pipes clean & simple characteristics, as well as a light, dry smoke. Initially, some of the Tsuge were inlaid with ivory, but the pipes are now made exclusively with briar, fitted with solid vulcanite stems and occasionally adorned with Japanese bamboo. The Tsuge pipes display beautiful artistry and provide an absolutely excellent smoke. They are a centerpiece addition to any pipe connoisseur’s collection - the sort of thing you'd want to display even to someone who doesn't understand about pipe smoking.
