Misc. Estates: Chris Asteriou Smooth Bent Egg with Bamboo (64/18) (2018) (Unsmoked) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-008-5762
A bent Egg from Chris Asteriou, this bamboo-shanked piece maintains an Acorn-like silhouette thanks to the heel spur beneath the transition. Asteriou enjoys heel spurs, as they are often a shaping element in his work. It's a seemingly minor detail, but look at the profile of this pipe and imagine it without that spur. It would be an entirely different pipe. The waistline is somewhat angled, but the effect is subtle, and the curvature of the bamboo shank seems to support the curvature of the bowl and add to the organic disposition of the piece. Slender except for the voluptuous bowl, this piece is still unsmoked.- Chuck Stanion
