Highly organic, flowing, elegant, I find myself quite enamored with this little pipe. It's not even all that little, really, but between its shank-less-ness and the full bent configuration, it gives far more of an impression of tiny-ness than it actually possesses. The wonderful flame grain that encompasses the bowl heightens the sense of soft organicism, as does the elegant flip into the rim. The stem-shank transition is unusual too, sporting a large convex countersink, creating a sense of seamlessness there that is quite striking.
