German Estates: Frank Axmacher Smooth Bent Stack (AA) (2007) (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-005-5077
This bent Stack represents the more traditional end of Frank Axmacher's shaping style compared to the stylish Freehands within the German Carver's portfolio. The shaping is marked by incredibly soft lines — the shank and stem flowing seamless through the transition and heel into the bowl's gentle upward taper. Adding to that is superlative grain orientation, making this pipe a stunning composition. Swirling seas of birdseye dominate both sides, with cross grain perfectly poised down the center to bisect the form. It's one of the most breath-taking examples of cross-grain orientation I've ever witnessed, and it's deftly highlighted by a rich, chestnut contrast stain. Unsmoked.-Truett Smith
