Estate Pipes: German Estate: Cornelius Maenz Sandblasted Dublin Calabash Sitter with Boxwood (2011)  

Product Number: 004-005-9005

Cornelius Maenz is an independently-minded artisan who makes pipes only one way: His way. This is quite fortunate, as his way mainly involves things like superb design, precise shaping and engineering, and the exclusive use of high-quality, natural materials. He applies this approach right down to the littlest details, including, in this Calabash's case, the gasket that creates a snug seal between the separable cap-and-chamber and the cooling chamber of the sandblasted briar itself. Not only did he use natural cork (rather than the more common conglomerated-particle sort), but he even mounted it flush, which serves both to make for a more attractive presentation of even a seldom-exposed feature, and to lend the gasket itself more support.

Said cap-and-chamber is a composite piece, with beautifully smooth boxwood for the former, and cross-grained briar for the latter, while the briar itself is consistently-ring grained, jet-black of finish, and, of course, skillfully, exquisitely formed.
