Sandblasted Acorn with Bamboo

Product Number: 002-437-0052

Adam referred to this coolly idiosyncratic pipe as his "Frankenstein pipe, a pipe from the island of misfit toys." Reacting to the declaration as I do to roughly 80% of his remarks; "Huh?!", Adam went on to explain that he originally intended to make one of his signature Almonds, but a combination of creating a recent string of the shapes, along with already having one on the site, had his muse push him in a different direction. I still don't see the connection between his reference and his explanation, but at least I got an interesting story on a fascinating pipe.

To my mind (and I suspect to most any pipeman with eyes) the Acorn shape is about as perfect as it gets and the blast is spectacular, even by Davidson standards. I have seen my share of intriguing black bamboo in my day, but this root really takes the cake; the hues remind me of those found in ancient, well smoked meerschaums and the coloring is completely natural, not the product of sanding. Though approaching five and a half inches in length, this quirky cutie weighs a mere twenty-two (22) grams. That's the weight of eight pennies (or one gram more than the human soul, if you buy into the premise of Alejandro Iñárritu's 2003 cinema masterpiece).

Highly recommended
