Sandblasted Bent Brandy with Boxwood (Turtle)

Product Number: 002-533-0041

Why, aside from personal aesthetic preferences, would a carver favor emphasizing the equatorial bulge of a bent Brandy via a compression on the vertical axis (side-to-side, from smoker's perspective)? Well, the answer begins with a glance at either of your hands. More than simply being a cool anatomical feature which allowed man to transcend beyond a mere killer ape into a super killer ape, that opposable thumb is also critical when it comes to a less-than-tenuous pipe-grip. Being the widest of our digits, it needs room, thus the area between the bowl and mount can be very valuable briar real estate. By moving the bulge forward, so to speak, your thumb can find a happy home even on shorter shank forms — without your favorite hitch-hiking tool getting precariously close to the fire in the chamber.

Handling ease aside, this bowl form presents a very handsome visual from both the smoker's and front viewing perspective, and can, handled deftly, be the prouder owner of some fine cheeks. Gabriele exceeded in the handling, and how on earth could one improve on the blast?
