PS Studio: Sandblasted Bent Apple
Product Number: 002-458-0130
Most, not all, of Russian born pipe maker Vladimir Grechukhin's sub-brand PS Studios release pipes that are midway between a standard size and a nosewarmer, Danish streamlining and Italian proportioning, classic and freehand shaping; and as you can imagine, this equates to one very pleasurable experience when held. The heavy, bulbous cheeks hanging at the base of each flank, for instance, provides the fingers with an extra bit of support when tucked between the creases. Grechukhin seemingly knew how good it held (how could he not) and upped the effect by sandblasting the stummel, quite superbly I might add, finishing the piece in a way which may prevent you from ever putting it down.
