Smooth Bent Brandy with Masur Birch (3 Star)

Product Number: 002-287-0169

Consistently adhering to a principle of cohesion associated with hues, often referred to as “the rule of three” (think “high-contrast bengal, masur, and the black of the stem), Danish carving legend Kent Rasmussen employs an immaculate symbiosis of plane and edge, as well as a delightfully architectural execution, to create a pipe that could stand at the center of most any collection. If the preceding could (and does) hold true for any Rasmussen briar, imagine how this staggeringly handsome bent Brandy would serve as the center of yours.

Round (bowl), oval (rim), as well as the apex of a masonry vault/arch – the keystone (mount and shank) combine to form a synergy which results in an intuitive, irreproachable totality. Kent (for reasons only known to God and Mr. Rasmussen) rarely creates a Brandy; they might represent about 2% of his production, and what precious few Brandies he has created (and one was a Butterfly Grade), in my opinion, stand a pace behind the masterpiece presently on your monitor. After you take the picture tour and have evaluated the shape, the grain – the splendid totality... is it me, or does this masterwork rate awfully close to a Butterfly grade?

--R. ‘Bear’ Graves
