This is by no means your 'traditional' Cutty shape. On the one hand it's missing a foot (not a strict rule, but your purists will notice). And on the other hand the pipe's bowl, which is somewhat larger than what one might expect in a Cutty, shows off some rather rounded proportions, particularly around the posterior side, lending to the overall composition a feel in form we might associate with the Danish style Egg. However, that the bowl is appropriately forward-canted and transitions into a lengthy shank and slightly downward bent stem is very Cutty-like. All things considered Tom Eltang's variant is a very slick, modern styling of one of the oldest shapes in the entire pantheon of classic forms. And don't you just love the way this thing is rusticated? Beautiful.
