German Estates: Rainer Barbi Smooth Bent Brandy (c. 1975)
Product Number: 004-005-5065
As well respected as a carver as he was a person, Rainer Barbi is among the most beloved German artisans, sadly having passed away in 2011. This bent Brandy represents Barbi's earlier work, having been fashioned in the mid-1970s. It's evocative of the German carver's typically flowing and dynamic style, the bowl urging forward with visual momentum and its height further emphasized by the shank's oval cross section. It's not a small pipe by any means, with almost two inches of chamber depth, and plenty of substance to promote comforting smoking sessions.-Truett Smith
