German Estates: Hermann Hennen Sandblasted Apple with Boxwood
Product Number: 004-005-4892
Hermann Hennen made his first pipes with his brother when he was 13 or 14 years old, carving them out of whatever wood the brothers could find and smoking tobacco given them by their grandfather. Decades later, the German artisan is fashioning pieces such as this Apple: Classically shaped but quite robust of proportions, it presents plenty of substance in hand, benefiting from a crisp sandblast. The blast's dark stain stands in stark contrast to the boxwood accent at the shank end, lending the form a more naturalistic but still handsome, dress pipe aesthetic.-Truett Smith
