Misc. Estates: Yuwei Smooth Billiard with Bamboo (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-008-5936
For me, and for many artisan pipemakers as well, the mark of a well-made, bamboo-adorned pipe (all things being equal as they regard internal engineering and standard shaping conventions) is how the carver incorporates bamboo into the overall composition. Most often, this element is accomplished by paying attention to the natural rhythm of the bamboo's knuckles. Taiwanese carver Yuwei Huang has done well here to match the spacing of the knuckles with the base of the saddle stem, even canted the line to resemble the asymmetric, organic style of the bamboo. At the other end, then, rises a regal, Danish-style Billiard bowl, slightly tapering toward the rim and displaying a gorgeous array of flame grain. Unsmoked.-Truett Smith
