Few pipe makers can rival the Horn shape as produced by S. Bang. Bo Nordh was famous for his Horn shape, but stuck to a perfect design, more or less, while Per and Ulf seem to enjoy playing with asymmetry and an overall form with beefy proportions. This shape in particular can be a challenge for some carvers to get right. There is no noticeable junction between shank and stem like many other classics, but the fluidity from stem to stern are conscious efforts that interplay with overall grain patterns. By contrasting this piece in a warm orange/red, grain that would otherwise be rather mute comes to life in vivid display.
