Scrolling through the history of frank Axemacher pipes we've carried, this artisan's work goes something like this: freehand, neoclassical, freehand, neoclassical, freehand, freehand, neoclassical, neoclassical
. His freehands tend to be very
freehand and often quite complex, his neoclassical shapes very clean, simple, and elegant; all are equally impressive. This looped-ribbon-turned-Cavalier (and/or Blowfish) sitter shape is... well, definitely a stand out, even by the standard of Axemacher's wilder works.
