Though when it comes to my personal pipes I stick to classics, this doesn't mean I can't appreciate a good freehand or modern reinterpretation. This bent Egg, I have to say, I really like. Wrapping your hand around that smooth river-stone of a bowl is simply a pleasure, and the transition's easy lift and delicate proportions ensure the aforementioned experience is not interrupted. As for looks, said bowl and transition are just plain graceful, and the considerable flare of the long shank pulls everything into balance.
