Will Purdy's quest to have his stamp become synonymous with excellence was such that he created dozens of pipes before he even gave a thought to retailing them. Will was about to create what I referred to as Purdy-Proto #3, and he asked me which shape/whose interpretation I favored at the moment? Not really understanding why he was asking, I blurted "The Balleby bent Brandy". About a week later, the USPS dropped off a box which contained a bent Brandy which was eerily close to the shape, stain and grain of the Balleby bent Brandy that was in my hand. Third pipe, gents - seriously. If I had known why he had asked, I probably would have replied instead, "Nordh Ramses"
Long past having to suffer through idiot friend's requests for the pipe equivalent of Vuitton knock-offs, Will's signature shapes boast a legion of fans, and his interpretations of the neoclassics have precious few rivals. This Willcano (yes it's a word, I just made it up) displays an execution which was well ahead of its time of production - 2009 - featuring hints of compactness and proportional play which would be right at home in 2014. Amongst the multitude of Will's strengths is his uncanny ability to create a perfect arc in his shanks and stems to complement his bowls, and this Willcano is no exception. Great grain and a near pristine condition. Highly recommended.
