The Tsuge pipe manufacturing workshop was founded in the 1930s by Kyoichiro Tsuge in Japan.
Thus one was born from a cigarette-holder factory, the one that today is the biggest and the most advanced Japanese producer in the field of pipes.
Its pipe production laboratories are based in Tokyo and in the Asakusa district.
Tsuge Japanese pipes have an undeniable international approach; more decidedly Japanese are other Tsuge pipes with metal finishes, details in bamboo, refined lacquering.
But what all the models have in common is the coherent, meticulous, obstinate search for perfection.
Kyoichiro always looked for her, her heirs tenaciously sought her.
The Tsuge Roulette pipe modifies the idea of a traditional pipe both for the design and for the introduction of a smoke expansion chamber.
The Tsuge roulette is the forerunner of the current pipe reverse calabasch.
In the foot of the pipe, in worked metal, an interspace is left, a space, as in Calabasch pumpkin pipes.
This gap creates an expansion chamber for smoking.
The expansion chamber can be filled with aromatic tobacco that does not come into contact with the tobacco in combustion, but with the passage of smoke it releases soft aromas.
Or with the special stones or left empty this expansion chamber catches the water-jet that is created in the burning of wet pipe tobaccos.
The Tsuge Roulette line is the modern 20th century calabasch, produced with the most modern materials and technology.
The pipe mouthpiece consists of a methacrylate part and a metal part which is unscrewed.
Futuristic design is the combination of two materials: traditional briar and metal.
The cylindrical cooker is in natural briar and is screwed onto the foot of the pipe.
Each Japanese Tsuge pipe is a unique and unrepeatable piece, the external finish may vary slightly from the image as each briar pipe is a unique piece.
The variations are intended only in the nuances of the briar, the measures and the shape do not vary.
