After finding only perfection in the execution, not to mention a superb grain of faultless placement, I had to scrutinize this briar from rim to stern – with only three years of experience, and mentor/feedback-free experience at that – give me a tick and I will (damn it) find an area which needs improvement. Hand carved stem, deliciously thin bit of perfect slotting, chamfered tenon, polished interior in the mortise and a draft hold placement right where “God intended”. My personal ego is bruised, but the pipe-nut in me is crazy-happy. Looking back at my run-on first sentence, I made a small error; Ping Zhan’s work hasn’t been feedback free, his pipes sell like crazy in Europe – and that is the most earnest feedback which a carver can receive. Mr. Zhan? “I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.”
