Karl-Heinz Joura's signature juxtaposition of shank and bowl can enhance the spherical qualities inherent in most any pipe shape, but when it is applied to the ball shape, the pipe almost takes on the appearance of a suspended globe. The grain of this "Infinity" is nothing short of stunning - it is an Infinity, after all. The shank is one of Karlo's squares and bears an amazingly seamless transition on to the round of the bowl. The entire composition has an undeniable grace, flow, and sense of the elegant. Unsmoked, and an unqualified thumb's up.
