American Estates: Michael Frey Rusticated Oom Paul (1987)
Product Number: 004-009-12397
Now retired, Michael Frey made only so many pipes, now available only on the estate market (if you're lucky enough to find someone parting with one). As a student of Michael Butera, Frey's work is marked by expert craftsmanship and usually a penchant for robust designs. Such is the case with this Oom Paul — the deep bend balancing out the stummel's immense presence. The bowl is more rounded and less cylindrical than the traditional Oom Paul, conforming naturally to the palm and making this dense rustication all the more enjoyable.-Truett Smith
