Ardor: Mercurio Horn with Boxwood

Product Number: 002-004-1794

It's easy to associated Ardor, by default, with massive, meaty briars. One of their best-known lines is the Giant, after all, and most of their handier designs are pretty stoutly proportioned as a rule, too. In this case, however, they present us with something completely different. While not a small briar by any means, this long, sweeping Horn is positively lithe in proportions, though the fully-paneled shaping makes for more of a sleek and precise, rather than willowy and supple impression. Divvying up the pipe's surface into clean, well-defined planes also serves as a fine way of displaying this piece's excellent grain, presenting slashing bands of flame grain along the flank, and long curves of birdseye along the quartet of upper and lower panels.
