American Estates: Larry Roush Sandblasted Hawk with Silver (S2) (1565) (2008)
Product Number: 004-009-5680
Larry Roush has been carving pipes since 1989, and was well-received even then, making him somewhat of an anomaly because of the obscurity high-grade American pipe makers went through during that time. After a brief stint as a jeweler in 1996 (garnering a knack for metalwork that has served him well as a pipe maker) Roush began making pipes again in 2001, much to the enjoyment of his loyal followers.
This piece is so characteristic of his style: generously proportioned, ruggedly sandblasted, and gifted with a preferential Hawkbill shank. It's a solid, masculine styled Poker which settles, effortlessly, on to a base of daunting stability. Barely tainted by smoke and boasting a condition grading of 4.9, given the paucity of brand new Roushs on the market, this is about as close to 'new, in box' as you are likely to find.
