German Estates: Frank Axmacher Sandblasted Freehand (2014) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-005-6529
A sculptor and stonemason by training, Frank Axmacher found much success when transitioning to pipe making. With over a decade of experience, the German artisan is considered a master by his peers. This Freehand is a fine example of his work, featuring a plump, rounded, oblong bowl with a distinct, angular rim drawn to a point at fore and aft. Out back, a thick oval shank provides compositional balance as it arcs upward to meet a comfortably bent vulcanite saddle stem. Dressed in a crisp black sandblast, the stummel offers a wealth of engaging texture for the fingers to explore.-Gabriel Bass
