German Estates: Manuel Shaabi Rusticated Freehand (Unsmoked) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-005-6713

Born in Lebanon, Manuel Shaabi moved to Germany in 1979 and trained as a carpenter. After a decorated career as a cabinet maker, Shaabi decided to pursue pipe making, as he thought it would better satisfy his creative desires. After a few short years at the Pipe-Dan workshop, Shaabi founded his own studio, combining his wealth of experience as a woodworker, cabinet maker, and pipe carver to create stunning, evocative Freehands. This Freehand by Manuel Shaabi possesses a robust, forward-thrusting bowl that features two bulging flanks and a broad, sweeping heel, manifesting a plump and comfortable feel in hand. Out back, the tight transition leads to an arched shank that rises upward to a elongated saddle stem, giving this piece a sinuous profile while driving compositional focus to the muscular bowl. Additionally, the stummel is dressed in a striking rustication, which carves deep, undulating flutes into the briar that almost perfectly mimics sandblasted growth rings.
