American Estates: Joe Skoda Smooth Bent Paneled Acorn (0405)
Product Number: 004-009-6292
"God created the Heath tree, I have the privilege of carving something beautiful and useful from it.
" Thus Joe Skoda effectively lays out a philosophy of pipemaking — namely, his philosophy. When it comes to the latter, he recognizes that sound engineering should be the foundation of any pipe. When the it comes to the former, he seeks beauty in diversity; he may create several variations of a particular shape, but rarely a repeat. Previous to picking up the making of pipes (circa '96), he already had many years of experience creating detailed woodwork. As such, I can't say I'm surprised that he's able to execute his designs so well despite doing so with such constant change and variation from one to the next.
