Sandblasted Bent Brandy

Product Number: 002-017-0190

If you were a universally heralded pipe carving Master, with over five decades experience (hey, it could happen), your impeccable executions of staunchly neoclassical shapes led to your acknowledgement as “The Keeper of the Danish Flame”, and eagerly awaiting collectors were lined up to own a piece of that traditionalism – why on earth would you still continue to experiment with one of your most popular shapes? Precisely because you are a master, and real pros never rest on their laurels.

While not the largest bent Brandy we have seen from Hans “Former” Nielsen, it would easily qualify as either a large group 6 or ODA, the gentle blast maximizes briar conservation while coaxing out an obscenely fine grain, and the overarching shape still falls well within the traditional. Having said, this fab Former is one of the most Rubenesque bent Brandies I have seen from Hans – indeed, I don’t think calling it zaftig would be a stretch. Even taking into account the characteristics of the bowl, the shank is still quite plump, and the stem treatment you see here, what few time you might encounter it, usually appears on either an Acorn or Horn (at least I have never seen it on a Brandy). Personally, I am liking it, but only your vote counts. What say you, Sir?
