New Pipes: Maigurs Knets: Partially Sandblasted Holly Lovat with Amboyna Burl (2/3 Stars)  

Product Number: 002-519-0026

Admittedly, it's strange to see something so 'ordinary', or at least so 'classic', from the likes of Maigurs Knets, but that's not to say this isn't one beautifully shaped Lovat. And it's also not to say that the piece isn't without the sorts of flourishes and nuances that set this carver apart from many of his peers. Take for instance the the shank terminus that's accented in a wafer of cumberland, followed by a bit of gorgeous abmboyna burl (an exotic accent that, like Alex Florov, he uses so well), which is then succeeded by a slice of horn. Busy? Surprisingly not. All the components work together, from the different hues to the varied grain patterns. And speaking of grain, this Lovat is also fairly handsomely grained, though the pipe's surface is really most captivating on account of the sandblasted holly reliefs that are sprinkled across the briar.
