German Estates: Joura Smooth Bent Brandy (Infinity B) (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-005-4880
One of Germany's premier pipemakers, Karlhienz Joura was a world-class, competitive diver before finding his way to pipemaking in 1974. His work is sought after the world over by discerning collectors, and his style is informed by Danish design but with signature shaping cues that make every Joura pipe distinct. One such recognizable aspect is the German carver's characteristic transition. Evident here on this bent Brandy, the shank extends into the lower bowl further than would be considered standard — it creates a strong sense of the cheeking and visually separates the bowl from the shank. In this particularly piece, the shank's underside is also flattened, the flanking ridgelines adding a rigid disposition into contrast to the bowl's voluptuous curves. Hearty in hand and beautifully sinuous, this Infinity B grade proves itself via flame grain all around the bowl and pinpricks of birdseye dominating the rim and heel. Unsmoked.-Truett Smith
