Danish Estates: S. Bang Smooth Blowfish (0539) (2005) (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-001-17935
If birdseye is one of the things you look for in a pipe, then this Blowfish from the esteemed S. Bang workshop can't get any more perfect. Both of the bulging flanks are completely saturated with a concise, dizzying display of mesmerizing whorls. Meanwhile, horizontal bands of cross-grain pattern the fore, aft, and undergirding panel, separated from the birdseye at the flanks by crisp ridgelines throughout. Imbued with a Danish sense of softness and fluidity, this piece is a beauty to behold, replete with a scalloped, chamfered rim and dressed in a gorgeous contrast stain that further elevates the grain. It's a well-executed example of S. Bang's skill and style and with Ulf and Per having retired from pipe making in 2019, it's an especially apt time to add an estate to your collection. It's presented here in unsmoked condition.-Truett Smith
