Danish Estates: Emil Chonowitsch Smooth Billiard
Product Number: 004-001-19659
Emil Chonowitsch, a Danish tobacconist, learned pipe making from Poul Rasmussen in the Suhr pipe repair shop. Like Poul, Emil focused on classic shapes, and since his passing 1996, he's left behind a portfolio full of traditional shapes, as well as a pipe making legacy now continued and furthered considerably by his son Jess. Presented here is an oval-shanked Billiard with a slightly longer tapered stem that pushes it slightly past Canadian territory. The transition is seamlessly executed, leading to a tall, slightly canted bowl that's traditionally rendered and ably reflects Emil's talents with shape chart standards. This is a piece of artisan pipe making history and would certainly be a welcomed addition to any collection.-Truett Smith
