Doctor's: Sandblasted Strawberry Wood Brandy with Bamboo
Product Number: 002-630-0001
Stout and playful is a great look, if you can pull it off. Pipemaker Roman Kovalev can pull it off. What's more, he doesn't just leave things at an interesting combination of lines and proportions. Here he employs not only his signature, specially-developed sandblasting technique, which produces a deep yet natural and detailed texture, but also his signature, fat and smooth "Buddha" bamboo. Aside from fitting in with the extra-stout shaping style, this bamboo's more marked tendency towards organic asymmetry and variation complements the results of his carefully developed sandblasting technique, while simultaneously contrasting its deep texture with a fine, bristle-patterned smoothness. (To the touch this bamboo feels, more than anything, like very, very well-polished stone.)
