When Mr Domoto first sliced into this block of wood he immediately realized that “Mother Nature” had blessed it with beautiful grain. Seeing that it was`t just any regular piece of briar, Mr Domoto decided that a bold “Blowfish” shape would be best suited to display this gem. The left and right panels frame the pipe`s beautiful Birdseye while the thick median section displays contrasting striped grain. A large thick boxwood band connects the shank to the stem in a very masculine fashion. Excellent work!
