American Estates: Adam Davidson Magnum Smooth Blowfish (2012) (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-009-6168
Crafted just before the 2012 Chicago Pipe Show, this is one of Adam Davidson's only magnums. It also happens to be quite a unique take on the classic Blowfish shape — elongated and simply massive in its proportions. Suffice to say, it's a rather singular design.
Using alternating sanding disks, the transition has been lent a spiral-like fluting, with sharp, protruding "fins" along either flank. The classic Ivarsson-esque "teardrop" line guides the eye along the elongated shank, yet it's slightly higher-set as it merges seamlessly with the aforementioned fluting transition, rather than extending into the upward curve of the bowl. Like I said, a singular design.
