Werner Mummert: Sandblasted Old Oak Reverse Calabash Poker
Product Number: 002-560-0069
Werner seems to enjoy making these dynamic, muscular Pokers. Whether it's due to his unique shaping or perfect execution of the reverse-Calabash cooling system, collectors seem to enjoy them as well. We've seen several of these designs recently, and they've always sold fast. I can't say I'm surprised given the German carver's masterful sandblasting technique and willingness to incorporate new materials into his designs. As part of his Old Oak line, this particular number was crafted from oak recovered from an ancient 16th century church somewhere in Germany. Perfectly executed in a dark stain and crisp sandblast, he unearths the wood's interesting grain orientation for a unique feel in hand and an aesthetic that's simply stunning.
