Former Freehand Smooth Bent Egg (Unsmoked)

Product Number: 004-001-6097

There are some shapes that certain pipe makers just own. Take, for instance, Tom Eltang's Pokers, Lasse Skovgaard and his various takes on the Elephant's Foot, and I dare you to find a better Brandy than an S. Bang; the Egg belongs to Hans 'Former' Nielsen. And speaking of the "Bang Brothers", I swear to God I had to look twice with this one. Per and Ulf, after all, have a very recognizable style when crafting the supply rounded shapes like Eggs, Brandies, Blowfish, and even Billiards - a kind of trademark, controlled liquidity that permeates throughout, curving the frame into a simple 'S' shaped gesture: the stem and shank dipping, and lifting gracefully unto the proportionally larger bowl.

Surprisingly, its conception seems to be spawned by more than just the Danish school. Bear is convinced the tapering, wasp-shaped shank and mount is of German decent, specially Wolfgang Becker, while I'm picking up Russian pipe master Vladimir Grechukhin. At this point, you may be saying to yourself "Who cares, it's a beautiful pipe, from a legendary pipe maker, and I want it...why does this guy care so much about who got what from who?" And you'd be right to chastise my enthusiasm for classifying every aspect of a pipe. I was, in fact, classically trained as an artist to be aware of such things, but along with that, I'm a pipe lover, and love is not a science.
