Misc. Estates: Konstantin Shekita Smooth Snail with Plateau (Unsmoked) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-008-3170

While his intricate latticework finishes often receive more attention, Konstantin Shekita is an absolute master in the use of plateau. This charmingly compact Snail rendition is a great example of his skill there. By devoting an entire flank of the composition to the block's craggy end, he not only provides a seriously stimulating feel in hand, but also showcases the interplay between the plateau and the tight striations of cross grain that cover the rest of the briar. Grain aside, the shape itself is just a charmer, simultaneously amazing and meditative, and just the perfect companion to a contemplative smoke.
