American Estates: J. Alan/Brad Pohlmann Sandblasted Pear Smokingpipes.com 2010 Christmas Pipe with Silver (04/07)
Product Number: 004-009-12608
Back in late 2010, American artisans Jeff Gracik and Brad Pohlmann collaborated to make a very special, limited edition run of seven Christmas-themed pipes exclusively for SmokingPipes. We were actually fortunate enough to witness the first stages of this special piece during the two days we spent in Jeff's shop, which you can see for yourself here on our blog. Shape-wise, it's a supple and delightfully plump take on the Pear and is paired to a streamlined round shank and tapered vulcanite mouthpiece. The smooth polished rim up top provides some subtle contrast to the rest of the stummel's crisp sandblast while the bright silver band along the shank end gives the piece a classy dress pipe aesthetic. This particular piece was number four in the series and features Jeff's and Brad's stamp, the year it was crafted, and the SmokingPipes shop stamp.- Jeffery Sitts
