Sandblasted Elephant's Foot with Bamboo (Spider 1)

Product Number: 002-514-0090

Quite a different take on the Elpephant's Foot, here Michael Lindner goes for a look that's sharp, crisp, and straight. Well, in profile at least - viewed from the front or rear, this briar presents something much softer, something half-way between a heart-shape and an escutcheon. Of course as a Spider grade briar, you're no doubt expecting a particularly fine sandblast. And that's what Lindner's got, just not in the expected manner. "Fine sandblast" typically calls to mind a choice display of ring grain. Here it means a really fine blast, one that highlights instead the delicate texture of the birdseye to the front and rear faces, and the delicate strands of the flame grain along the flanks. That's what it highlights, mind - the equally light-and-tight ring grain is still there to see, when you turn the pipe and let the light hit it just right. This magican's act between flame-strands a grain-rings is, I'll admit, pretty easily distracting, and I've readily found myself fiddling about with the pipe just to watch as one vanishes, and the other appears.
