The Tsuge pipe manufacturing workshop was founded in the 1930s by Kyoichiro Tsuge in Japan.
Thus was born one from a cigarette holder factory, what is today the largest and most advanced Japanese manufacturer in the field of pipes.
Its workshops for the production of pipes are based in Tokyo and in the Asakusa district.
Tsuge Japanese pipes have an undoubted international approach; more decidedly Japanese are other Tsuge pipes with metal finishes, bamboo details and refined lacquers.
But what all the models have in common is the coherent, meticulous, obstinate search for perfection.
Kyoichiro always looked for her, his heirs to him tenaciously look for her.
The Tsuge spider pipe modifies the idea of a traditional pipe both for the design and for the introduction of a smoke expansion chamber, following the concept already introduced by Tsuge Roulette.
The Tsuge spider Rock is the forerunner of the current reverse calabash pipes, with a special addition.
In the foot of the pipe, in worked metal, a cavity is left, a space, as in the Calabash pumpkin pipes.
This gap creates an expansion chamber for the smoke.
The expansion chamber can be filled with aromatic tobacco that does not come into contact with the burning tobacco but releases sweet aromas with the passage of smoke.
Or with the appropriate stones or left empty this expansion chamber captures the aqueruggiola that is created in the combustion of wet pipe tobaccos.
The Tsuge spider rock line is the modern twentieth century calabash, produced with the most modern materials and technology and with the addition of a cap that screws over the combustion chimney.
This metal screw cap allows you to carry the loaded pipe without the tobacco getting lost in the pockets.
When you are ready to smoke your pipe, just unscrew the top cap and screw it to the foot of the pipe.
The cap is in machined aluminum and has a spider with its spider web as decoration.
The mouthpiece of the pipe consists of a methacrylate part and a metal part that unscrews.
The futuristic design is the combination of two materials: the traditional briar and the metal.
The cylindrical burner 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 since 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.
