Its lustrous smooth surface shows the mark of years of usage. The tsutsu is depicting the celebrated motif of a wild and rustic Ashinaga, the long legged mythical South-Sea islander, yawning with mouth wide opened, arms and legs stretched above a wood stump, in an ingenious design that transforming the figure into the holder of a long stem bamboo pipe, inserted into two separate bronze fittings that featuring nine cranes in relief, with the signature “Issai” signed on a rectangular silver reserve over an original bronze lima bean ojimi, where a copper plated tiny bee is found landed on the opposite side.
