Danish Estates: Ben Wade Free-Hand Matt Rhodesian

Product Number: 004-001-21538

This Rhodesian from Ben Wade certainly lives up to its name, fusing the classic profile with the sweeping lines and fluting channels of the Danish Fancy Freehand style. These are seen in the shank as a series of twisting ridgelines, with a section of fluting near the end, resulting in some dramatic and striking paneling. The bowl is even more striking, as, above the wrapping ridgeline that marks the taper to the rim, we see an incredible amount of asymmetry, with slopes, plateau, and outcroppings galore. The deep auburn stain that dresses this pipe is quite nice, revealing handsome grain and contrasting the expansion ring adorned stem's black hues.
