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!-Joshua Burgess
