Misc. Estates: Michail Kyriazanos Smooth Prince with Bronze Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-008-10020

Greek artisan Michail Kyriazanos takes inspiration from the Anglo-French marques of years past, holding a deeply-ingrained respect for a shaping tradition he sees as being committed to excellent functionality and aesthetic perfection without excess. His commitment to this style of shaping without superfluousness is even reflected in his logo, a re-imagined homage to Cycladic art figurines which are the oldest known intentionally minimalist art, and in his pipe making work as well. This Prince is a wonderful example of Michail's more classic leanings, looking like it would be at home on nearly any Anglo-French marque's shape chart. As a Prince, this pipe is possessed of a demure curvature, one held entirely by the stem, which attaches to the stummel at a short shank accented with a band of bronze. The shank is both extremely trim and slim, tapering out gently from a wide transition that leaves plenty of room to drape a thumb, and keeps the aft of this pipe quite gracile. Held aloft at the end of the shank and stem is the bowl, a plump, bulb-like affair that's rich with curves to wrap the fingers around: its squat and compact build keeping the weight light and easy to clench. Dressed in a warm mahogany stain, the stummel here showcases handsome grain throughout, its bowl wrapped with flame while birdseye covers the rim and underside.
