Danish Estates: Emil Chonowitsch Smooth Brandy (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-001-18701
Shortly after deciding to learn pipe making, tobacconist Emil Chonowitsch began working with Poul Rasmussen at the Suhr repair shop, and was soon joined there by his son Jess Chonowitsch. They both learned the basics at about the same time, and went on to follow their own separate careers. While Jess has overshadowed his father's pipe making, both are highly skilled and creative artisans, though Emil passed away in 1996. This straight Brandy is a nice representation of his style, its bowl taking the preponderance of the visual weight in comparison to the lithe and streamlined shank-and-stem combination. The bowl displays a beautifully subtle, curved taper to the rim, all commended by a mahogany stain that illuminates the briar's natural grain patterns. Most surprising is that this piece remains unsmoked.- Chuck Stanion
