New Pipes: Maigurs Knets: Smooth Cavalier with Pine Cone  

Product Number: 002-519-0034

Maigurs Knets is one of those artisans whose pipes I always make sure to check out as soon as they arrive. Whether rendered in his highly sculptural freehand style, or simpler, but just as richly composed traditional shapes, his work is consistently, uniquely beautiful. Here he presents us with one of the less commonly seen traditional forms, that of a fully-functional Cavalier, complete with moisture-well and all. Of course, being a Knets, not only is the shaping artful, but the palette is tastefully complex as well, featuring not one but two of his signature pine cone composite pieces (on stem-base and moisture-well cap), but also, as usual, careful attention to the transition between differing materials. Here I'm referring to the slim wafers of dark, black-and-brown, finely-patterned horn he's used as buffers between the jet-black mounts of both stem and cap, and the dusky, rich, amber-tinged contrast stain of the briar itself.
