As usual, Jeff does a stupefyingly awesome job with his bent Apple design, showing off his keen eye for elegant shaping, his inherent understanding of formal beauty, and his enormous talent when it comes to negotiating the finest of details. Jeff Gracik is an absolute perfectionist regarding his craft; he doesn't settle for anything less than exquisite nor is he willing to compromise his vision during the production process. The result is two-fold: 1) J. Alan pipes are among of the most refined smoking implements made any where in the world. 2) J. Alan pipes are extremely popular and can be difficult to obtain. Do yourself a favor and take home this beautifully grained, deftly carved master work while you still can.
