Estate Pipes: Misc. Estate: Jobert Mopane Smooth Bent Billiard  

Product Number: 004-008-1689

If you've never seen a pipe made from Mopane before, welcome to the club. I guess this isn't really all that surprising, though, as it grows only in certain areas of southern Africa where its incredible hardness and density has made it a prized material for fashioning termite-resistant flooring, fences, homes, railroad-ties and other constructions where lasting durability is essential. Of course, the very features which make it so desirable, also make it a challenge to work with in more detail-oriented crafts, though it has enjoyed a growing popularity in the making of woodwind instruments. Still, while I'll give Johan Slabbert credit for for risking his tools' edges to create this beautifully grained, and very hefty number, don't expect to see another mopane pipe again any time soon - Johan's no longer active in pipemaking, sadly.
