Walt Cannoy had a vision: making a pipe of classic French and English inspiration, executed to modern artisanal standards in every aspect from form and balance of proportions, to the work of the hand-cut stem, to details of engineering. The problem with this vision, was that he was picturing this pipe in Turkish meerschaum. And it's against Turkish law to export the stuff - in raw form at least.
Where or how Walt eventually got his hands on some block meerschaum, we're not saying... because he's not saying. Somehow, though, he did it, and the result is the Cannoy Meerschaum Collection. To date Walt has completed six pipes for the Collection, of which this "gentlemanly rendition of the straight Apple" is number four.
Just as he envisioned, the execution of the shape is straight-out classic, with an emphasis on length and elegance. Drilling is centered and open, choice of accent is tasteful, and the hand-cut German ebonite stem is exactly what we expect from an accomplished American artisan: excellent work. Black acrylic has been used as an insert/border between the meerschaum and delrin-lined canary wood ferrule - a smart choice on Walt's part. Acrylic, unlike vulcanite, won't need any occasional polishing, something which would have eventually effected the finish of the shank-end and ferrule. To top it all off, Walt also includes hand-made and custom-fitted cases for each piece of the Collection, sporting felt lining, two-tone leather exteriors, and brass hinges and clasps.
