Danish Estates: S. Bang Partially Sandblasted Bent Brandy with Mammoth (UN)
Product Number: 004-001-21035
After remarkable careers as pipe artisans, Per and Ulf of S. Bang retired from the craft in 2019, making this already remarkable bent Brandy from the venerable Danish duo even more collectable. Flowing and cleanly defined, this rendition is stamped "UN" to clarify that it was carved by Ulf Noltensmeier.
The overall proportions are generous, as is the chamber capacity, promising plenty of leisurely smoking sessions, which will come in handy so you can admire at length its ring grain brought to life by a dark, well executed sandblast. The rim is slightly inflated, in keeping with Danish tradition, and left lighter and smooth for contrast, while a pale accent of mammoth flares at the shank end for a distinct profile and visual variety. The S-curve of shank and stem is completed by a saddle stem of jet-black vulcanite, flaring to an unobtrusive fishtail at the handcrafted lip button. The mammoth ivory has been expertly repaired by our in-house artisan, Adam Davidson, contributing to this pipe being an excellent find.- Joel Balyeat
