Misc. Estates: Alexander Nepokoychitskiy Sandblasted Prince (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-008-6128
As an adolescent, Alexander Nepokoychitskiy enjoyed building model airplanes, a hobby which would later encourage him to pursue a degree from the Moscow Aviation Institute of Technology. It also instilled in him the patience and hand-eye-coordination necessary to begin making his own pipes. While more or less self taught, Alexander derives inspiration from a host of styles — from his fellow Russian artisans as well as the Scandinavian greats. This Prince combines a more English sense of shaping, hewing closely to the traditional shape chart standard, but the finish is a common one from Danish makers — the smooth-stained rim acting as a tasteful contrast against the glossy, dark-stained sandblast of the stummel. It's offered here in unsmoked condition.- Andrew Wike
