Former: Smooth Bent Dublin with Silver

Product Number: 002-017-0202

Excuse me, Brother? Could you please pass me the smelling salts? Actually, with this shape and grain, you might want to have a defibrillator standing by. It is precisely for the consistent creation of pipes such as this, we are reminded why Former is one of the true greats in the world of pipe making (as if we should need to be reminded). Clean, beautiful lines, spectacular grain, perfect engineering and finishing - this is what Former's all about – the very essence of his art as well as his legacy.

Former elected to run with a more vertical rise to the bowl than we usually see in his bent Dublins, and then create a subtle tier surrounding the inner rim. The result is a perfect, circular canvas to display a staggering straight and flame grain on the sides, and provide the barest hint from the profile of the birdseye which awaits on the rim. All Former briars exude a palpable sophistication, elegance and, often, an execution which comes as close to perfection as it gets on this side of Utopia. Every once in a while, they get even better....
