Misc. Estates: Bondarev Rusticated Poker (1927) (2019) (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-008-5846
Alexandr Bondarev is a Latvian pipemaker that has been crafting pipes since 2011 and was inspired to make pipes of his own after his wife purchased a handmade one for this birthday, immediately appreciating the skilled work and detail that goes into artisan pipemaking. Here, Bondarev has fashioned a lengthy, substantial take on the Poker, imbuing the sure-sitting, utilitarian design with plenty of fascinating texture. A rugged rustication dresses the stummel and is highly reminiscent of tree bark visually and texturally. It offers plenty of rich texture to keep your fingers entertained while the smooth polished rim offers some subtle contrast. The stummel's light tan stain is handsomely complemented by the warm tones of the amber-hued acrylic saddle stem. It's the first time we've seen an example of Bondarev's work pass through our doors and is presented here in unsmoked condition.- Jeffery Sitts
