Werner Mummert takes a rather playful turn with this sandblasted Poker - literally. Aside from tweaking the bowl with crisp forward shift, he's shaped the shank as if one section of it were rotated out of place. As unusual a fourish as it may be, it's still executed fairly subtly, and easy to miss until look at the pipe up close. Otherwise, this is a simple, if rather modernist Poker design, cleanly formed and very functional - i.e. a solid sitter with plenty of chamber.
