Andrey Grigoriev Smooth Saxophone with Bamboo

Product Number: 004-008-1970

Disciples of the Full Bent, rejoice! A jaw-hanger in purpose and a jaw-dropper in form, this is a pipe not without the element of surprise. The visual rhythm of the bamboo knuckles is handled in a surprising approach. The distance between knuckles, according to the rules of design, should be mimicked in the flare of the saddle and the briar portion of the shank. However where the saddle is concerned, this rule is broken. The distance between the second knuckle and the saddle is about half the distance between the fist and second knuckle. Hmm...? Yet with the top of the saddle softened and angled forward, the eye is drawn to the peak of the stem's gentle bend which, while having no flare at all, falls directly within the visual rhythm begun from the base of the bowl and on through the bamboo. Streaked with cross-grain, replete with birdseye, light as fairy dust and comfortable as all get out. Win!
