Maigurs Knets: Sandblasted Long Shank Turtle (2 Stars)
Product Number: 002-519-0001
Most pipe carvers either consciously or subconsciously develop styles over the years and collector or others in the business start to say "that is a pipe made by [so and so]". Maigurs is one artisan that sets out to make a particular shape, and some become signatures. His Turtle design is, perhaps, his most recognizable and representational. As viewed from the front, he did a fine job replicating the shape of a turtle shell and fluidly shaped the rest of the pipe to match, finishing the piece with a abruptly bent vulcanite stem that allows the pipe to hang far below the chin.
