Like a haiku, a lone fish swimming past a river reed evokes beauty with simplicity. Legend holds that, long ago, before man wrote things down, a great school of koi swam up the Yellow River. Coming to a high waterfall, they strove against the current to surmount it. After a century of struggle, only one fish reached the top. It was transformed into a golden dragon.
This is the pipe for the quiet afternoon, the time of simply appreciating the things you can see. Watch the trees in their symmetry. Watch the grass as it reaches for the sun. Watch the small curling of smoke into the air. Heiwa!
– Panegyrics by Adam Whipple
This pipe was carved from the finest Italian Briar. This pipe will smoke much like a cutty in terms of bowl angle. The shape is the first of it’s kind out of the Growley workshop, but probably not the last. This pierced Kawarimono was blasted to show the grain with some areas left smooth to highlight the birdseye.
The stem was hand carved from German Ebonite, and was fitted with a comfort fit button, which makes it comfortable and easy to hold in your mouth. As with all my pipes, I’ve opened this pipe up properly to give it the the right air flow to provide a cool dry smoke.
