New Pipes: Scott Thile: Smooth Cherrywood (FH) (254)  

Product Number: 002-615-0002

To quote the immortal poet, Keanu Reeves, "Whoa!!"

About 99.5% of the time, when I pick up a pipe to describe it, something will immediately step up as a point of attention. That something could be the shape, often the grain, it could be a painfully pretty ridge or a pleasingly pudgy bowl. Then you have the remaining .5%; those rare briars that are blessed with such a fine balance between the fascination of the shape and quality of the grain that picking one is no longer simple reflex, but requires either actual thought or a coin toss. This Scott Thile Cherrywood is such a pipe.

The rim is a fascinating, birdseye-filled ellipsis, with a softly domed reverse-saddle and a preponderance of wood to the fore. With that quality of birdseye on the crown, there’s bound to be a captivating cascade of straight grain on the body, and this Cherrywood sports a robe of angel-hair on the bowl as well as a dense flame grain on both sides of the shank. To my mind, one of the hallmarks of a fine Western pipemaker is the ability to evoke a sense of nature/the organic though the use of architectural forms. This Thile Cherrywood sitter transforms an ellipsis, cone and graceful sine wave into a presentation that would look perfectly at home in a forest.

--R. ‘Bear’ Graves
