American Estates: Bruce Weaver Sandblasted Bent Egg (SB1)
Product Number: 004-009-5530
This is the kind of design that I tend to think of as offering extra-deep chambered, Stack-style smoking, but in a more visually interesting style. The shaping might be interpreted as either of Danish or Pesaro influence, though personally (and despite how much more common Danish influence is amongst American pipemakers) I lean towards the latter on account of the pretty muscular transition, rather large overall size, and seemingly more aggressive gesture up front. The deep sandblast combined with an earthy, smoky finish, though, is definitely more of an American artisan thing.
