Danish Estates: S. Bang Smooth Blowfish (Unsmoked) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-001-32799
The pairing of legendary carvers Per Hansen and Ulf Noltensmeier of S. Bang resulted in some of the most meticulously crafted pipes to be found. The two retired in 2019, thereby closing the workshop, with their pipes occasionally appearing on the estates market. This Blowfish is a fine representative of the stellar engineering, finishing, and harmonious shaping that defined S. Bang pipes. The forward-urging, towering bowl is Egg-shaped in this particular design, the pipe's softened contours and easy lines inherent to Danish design seen throughout this gorgeous piece. A pronounced ridgeline travels from the rim down the fore, through the heel where it continues along the underside of the shank. The voluptuous, full-bodied egg is poised at the end of said hearty shank, which ticks upward and is met by a hand-cut vulcanite saddle stem. This piece is shaped specifically to highlight its stunning grain, with tightly stacked cross grain at fore and aft and simply phenomenal whorls of birdseye saturating either flank. This piece remains unsmoked.-Angela Robertson
