Lee Von Erck Sandblasted Poker (A) (2010)

Product Number: 004-009-5835

For years I have referred to Lee Von Erck's work as "rustically elegant". By that, I do not mean the type of elegance which one can see in things natural. Lee is one of the few carvers that, in my opinion, can manage to create a pipe of extremely elegant line, exquisite balance, and hint at the beauty that can be found in the natural, the imperfect, without a whiff of affectation. The bowl is a smartly executed, reverse-conical stack that flaunts a sandblasted grain that could shake the metaphorical 'Pillars of Heaven'. The rim features a 15.8° "There's an app for that!" left-to-right, diagonal cant from the smoker's perspective, as well as a no-holds-barred plateau. Anchoring the composition through opposition, we have the natty, architectural lines of the shank and stem, as well as the smooth of the same balancing the near-geological ruggedness of the bowl.

I have owned three of Lee's pipes, and the worst of them smoked better than 98% of any other marques that I have collected. Great stuff.
