Estate Pipes: American Estate: Ed Burak Connoisseur Smooth Panel Calabash (Replacement Tenon)  

Product Number: 004-009-5395

It seems a shame Ed Burak didn't develop pipe-making skills himself, rather than sticking to acting as purely a pipe-designer instead. His designs are, after all, as rule well and thoroughly excellent - examples have been displayed in the Museum of Modern Art, as well as featured an American Craft Museum traveling exhibit. the only short-coming is that he relied on hired hands to make those designs reality, and so quality of execution, along with estate value, can vary immensely. Granted, the upside is that today this allows one to acquire pipes of an exceptional design heritage albeit of less-than-ideal execution, at prices on par with many an average, mass-produced factory briar. Case in point: this extra-long, extra-sinuous, extra-capacious Calabash, which although rather off-kilter in terms of the bowl's cross-section does present one knock-out of a silhouette.
