Smooth Bent Egg with Masur Birch (1 Star)

Product Number: 002-287-0172

It has become something of a Smokingpipes.com pub quiz: Jeremy or I pull a pipe from a tray and ask the other, “Who do you think made this one?” It’s a pretty good knowledge-building exercise, but the primary goal seems to be to stump each other or to reveal something we found surprising. We’ve never once quizzed one another on a Kent Rasmussen pipe. I suspect that has something to do with the fact that every piece this distinguished maker produces is indelibly marked as his own, so that the answer could never be anything other than, “That, sir, is a Kent!”

This smooth bent Egg exemplifies that distinctive style. Each piece that Rasmussen produces is highly stylized, each a kind of sculpture that also happens to be a first-rate smoking instrument. Every angle at which this pipe can be viewed showcases thoughtfulness of design and attention to detail: the gently curved front panel, which shows off some splendid birdseye grain, the gently tapered shank that flares just as it meets the stem, the elegant and precise transition from stem to masur birch accent. Most impressive, however, is the totality of the composition — the balance, the symmetry, the lines — which pulls the eyes from those impressive details to view the pipe as a splendid whole. This, sir, is a Kent!
