New Pipes: Chris Asteriou: Smooth Cutty with Bamboo  

Product Number: 002-540-0016

Some of the most skilled pipemakers active today have been known to expound upon the principle of mastering the classics before venturing off into other directions. Despite being one of the newer recognized artisans around, Chris Asteriou has already gained a reputation for having perfected his classic designs to a degree that is barely even believable - at least up until the time you actually get to see one in person. Seeing, as they say, is believing. And Asteriou's classics are crazy, crazy beautiful.

So it's no surprise that when he does go off and do something a little different, it, too, is liable to turn out just as sublime. Like this elegant, reserved, yet nonetheless also subtly novel design; a bamboo-stemmed hybrid Belge and Rhodesian (at least to my eye), which seems to simultaneously speak of classical-English reserve, Sixten Ivarsson gracefulness, and the Japanese school's artistic sense for the organic.
