Misc. Estates: Constantino Schussler Smooth Rhodesian with Bamboo (2016) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-008-10292

Constantino Schussler is a Chilean artisan who began carving pipes back in 2012 after becoming interested in the hobby from watching his cousin makes his own pipes. Schussler also spent time with Mimmo Romeo in Italy and Tom Eltang in Denmark, refining his skills and learning from those two talented carvers. This Rhodesian is a light and handy pipe, primed for comfortable and easy clenching despite its straight shaping. A wide transition gives way to a short shank that's extended by a length of bamboo comprising two knuckles of the dense grass, paired out back to a sleek saddle stem of black vulcanite. Up front, a rounded heel supports the bowl's walls as they flare toward a high-set waist marked by a firm ridgeline, one that additionally denotes a swift taper to the rim. A warm, vibrant stain dresses the stummel here, showcasing wrapping flame grain around the bowl and birdseye across the rim, its coloration contrasted by the bamboo's pale tones.
