New Pipes: Michael Parks: Partially Sandblasted Asymmetrical Cutty with Horn  

Product Number: 002-473-0051

I really liked this Michael Parks briar the first time I saw it, back when he was working on it in our own Adam Davidson's workshop (you can see it in profile in the third photo down, and me giving it a thorough oggling in the last one of that blog entry - I admittedly did a lot of that). It's undergone some changes since then, and I have to say... I like it even better now. The original shape was sleek and modern, but here, in its final form, Michael's accented and counterpointed the crisp lines and defined planes that lead the way up front with a contrastingly old-school material: horn. This, quite simply, makes for a great composition, and one which stands out all the more on account of the sheer length of horn that he's used. I can resolutely say that I've never seen anything quite like it; had he used bamboo instead, it still would have worked out quite well I believe, but it just wouldn't have had that extra "oomph" of uniqueness this approach has produced.
