Misc. Estates: Sam Cui Smooth Reverse Calabash Tomato (2016) (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-008-4604
Typically, with the Tomato shape being inherently plump and bulbous, pipes of this design thrust much of their visual weight towards the thick-walled bowl. In this Sam Cui rendition, however, the reverse calabash internals require that the shank be quite muscular, rivaling the proportions of the bowl. To contrast the robust, stout form, though, the piece is incredibly lightweight and compact overall, measuring in at under four and a half inches in length and offering a weight of only 41 grams. For fans of reverse calabashes and awesome grain (which this piece has in spades), this pocketable Tomato from the revered Chinese carver is one that can't be passed up. Unsmoked.-Truett Smith
