Misc. Estates: Vollmer & Nilsson Smooth Cobra (Pipes & Tobaccos Magazine Pipe of the Year) (5/36) (2014) (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-008-4963
Martin Vollmer and Anders Nilsson are a pair of pipemakers out of Sweden. In 2014, Pipes & Tobaccos Magazine commissioned the two half-brothers to make their annual Pipe of the Year. So, the duo fashioned 36 of these Cobra shapes, of which the one you see here is #5. Modeled after a partially shaped Bo Nordh pipe, the design's distinguishing feature is the scalloped facet making up the bowl's fore. It's almost as if a bite were taken out of a high-waisted Acorn shape, creating crisp points at the heel and top of the bowl connected by a crisp ridgeline. Though unique and rigid, it fits sublimely in hand, all dressed in a smoky contrast stain. Unsmoked, and in excellent condition.-Truett Smith
