Johs: Sandblasted Bent Brandy Churchwarden
Product Number: 002-392-2182
It is something of a surprise, when describing a batch of Johs, when one has worked through numerous heavy, plateau-rimmed Danish takes on the Dublin, to come to a pipe such as this. The impressions most immediate when picking up this bent Brandy are light and delicate. While that lightness is certainly a reality in comparison to Johs' Dublins, Bulldogs, etc., the delicacy is largely a trick of artful aesthetics. The combination of thin rim and a bowl whose fullness of curve is found mainly in the bottom result in an illusion of eggshell-like hollowness, a trick made all the more convincing by the long, graceful stem.
