New Pipes: Tom Eltang: Gotang Smooth Horn Calabash with Horn  

Product Number: 002-299-0376

Clean and smooth in line and form, this Gotoh-Eltang Horn presents an elegantly simple approach to creating a fine artisanal pipe, something which is deftly complemented by the slender circlet of a bead-line that appears just as the bowl begins to flare out into a broad plateau of, well, tightly-packed plateau. To that minimalist approach, however, the nature of the briar itself (combined with a deep contrast stain), adds a heavy richness – namely in the form of a panoply of gorgeous grain.

And truth be told, that apparent minimalism of design is just that anyway: an appearance. This Horn is in fact a Calabash Horn, and this means there’s a great deal of extra work hidden away beneath the smooth exterior. Engineering work, that is – all the extra drilling, fitting, and polishing that’s required to produce a removable cap and underlying cooling chamber of a quality and precision befitting a briar bearing the name of not one, but two of the greatest artisans alive and active today. Of course, from a practical standpoint the presence of said chamber also means that, aside from being a thing of rare beauty, this Gotang will just happen to deliver a smoke that is superbly cool and smooth to the palette. It’s like finding an exquisitely good cook who just happens to be ravishingly beautiful (and does not turn out to be insane). Now what sensible man turns his back on that?
