Tom Eltang: Smooth Bent Brandy with Horn

Product Number: 002-299-0359

Tom Eltang often remarks, with his usual great joviality, "It's *good* to be a pipe maker!" While I cannot speak to the pipe making side of the coin, as a hardened and shameless collector/smoker/copywriter, I can declare, "It's great that the pipe world has Tom Eltang!". At the time that I began my three (plus) year hiatus from Smokingpipes, I figured that Tom had to be close to an artistic plateau. After all, Tom had already spent decades diligently honing his craft and was firmly ensconced near/at the top of the pantheon of the legendary Danish pipemakers. What other worlds could he explore? How could he further improve on the near perfect? After forty-one months in the wilderness, I have returned to find that Tom's work has (somehow) managed to get even better.

To my mind, if ever a bent Brandy approached perfection in the Platonic sense; a state of completeness and flawlessness, this example of Eltang elegance would have to be a contender. At first blush, it almost appears that we have an archetypical Danish bent Brandy, right down to the subtle taper of the bowl and faintest 'cheeking' at the transition of the shank onto the same. Still, "God is in the details", and Tom's decision to create an ever-so-slightly greater reduction to the rear of the bowl, combined with a more perpendicular than expected arc to the shank and stem, produced something as 'Eltang' as it is stunning. Highly recommended.
