Danish Estates: S. Bang Smooth Bent Egg with Olivewood (A) (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-001-16021
Since inheriting Svend Bang's workshop in 1984, Per Hansen and Ulf Noltensmeier have cemented S. Bang pipes as some of the world's most premier, high-grade briars, offering superlative smokers fashioned in the Danish tradition and adorned in stunning finishes. This piece is a muscular bent Egg that exemplifies the duo's hearty design aesthetic imbued with the Danish style's use of supple curves, soft lines, flowing form. The bulbous, forward-inclined bowl inflates from out of a short transition and stout shank — said shank is adorned with a ferrule of boxwood, the top portions of which is cut to a crisp ridgeline, the rigid firmness contrasting against the rest of the piece's bulbous curves as much as the ink-swirled grain of the boxwood contrasts against the deep, chestnut contrast stain of the stummel. With superlative grain on display, this pipe boasts symmetrical bands of cross grain curling up the flanks, drawing focus to the sea of dense and glossy birdseye all along the fore.
