American Estates: Rad Davis Sandblasted Acorn (2013) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-009-15408
Fascinated by pipes since the 1970s, Rad Davis continuously collected and smoked pipes while working as a fly fishing guide in Montana. In need of a pipe repair, Rad turned to Mark Tinsky who was also an avid fly fisherman and the two eventually met, with Tinsky showing Davis around his workshop and inspiring Rad to carve pipes of his own. Though he's now retired, Rad Davis left behind quite a legacy with the estate market being the only place to obtain one of his creations, like this sinuous, gestural Acorn design. The bowl is plump and pert, topped with plateau along its rim and covered in a craggy sandblast that has coaxed out a mesmerizing array of ring grain. The stummel's warm tan stain is brilliantly complemented by the cumberland mouthpiece, its gentle downturn promoting a comfortable hands free smoking experience.- Jeffery Sitts
