Danish Estates: Johs Partially Rusticated Pickaxe (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-001-19796
Is there something very Celtic going on in the work of Mogens "Johs" Johansen? Never mind the artisan's heritage; just look at his vast catalogue of pipes with abstracted runic symbols — this particular piece makes me think of the ancient weapons used by Vikings to ransack towns and instill fear in their enemies, as if it already couldn't on its own, or for your particular purposes. As confidence inspiring in hand as an actual pickaxe, the conical shaped bowl, with its patch of rustication, fits effortlessly in one's palm, complete with a deep chamber that will most likely satisfy any hearty smoking, wayward pillager.- Chuck Stanion
