Sterling Silver Hand made Kiseru Kyoto Teramachi since 1834 300 mm. It is only one stock. This is Brand New Kyoto Japan Hand made Kiseru.Old-fashioned design as a traditional reins type smoke tube. Perhaps it seems to be the only store in Kyoto that can still make this. Total forgings make one article, we will receive time for production. It will be a wonderful old beauty color peculiar to silver along with the years. The torso is not handled with a fingertip from a heavy and heavy weight feeling, but grasps it firmly.
The twisted shape is very hand familiar. I, the only kiseru(Oriental pipe) maker left in Kyoto has been working with our studio. In addition to crafting pipes, he is also extremely skilled in engraving designs. We became acquainted a fewyears ago with the purpose of educating the successors about traditional techniques and preservation of knowledge. I had in fact closed his home studio 20 years ago, it all started with our studio inheriting all of his pipe making tools at that time.
The demand for high quality handmade pipes is no longer high enough for an individual craftsman to make a living. Even the last pipe stem shop left in the southern part of the city barely carries any Kyoto made pipes since the previous generation has past away.
I hope that we preserve as much knowledge as possible while Mr. I also would like to revive allkinds of things which have faded over time. · Texture: Shiny polished finish, heavy weight feeling · Approximate size: w 300 (mm) · Paulownia box included.
