Danish Estates: Tom Eltang Smooth Poker with Silver
Product Number: 004-001-16879
Typically when the name "Tom Eltang" is stamped on a Poker shape, we immediately recall the Danish carver's signature "smoking machine." However, that's not the Poker rendition we see here. Tom's signature shape features a sleek, featherweight disposition of tall, slender bowl and streamlined shank and stem. This smooth version, though, is decidedly stockier, conforming more to English or, even, Italian shaping cues with thick insulating walls and firm, rigid lines. It sits sturdily and benefits from a band of sterling silver highlighted against the smoky contrast stain. The ever-so-slightly bent saddle stem commends Tom's excellent button work, and he couldn't have selected a more gorgeous block of briar — near perfect cross grain and birdseye cover the bowl.-Truett Smith
