American Estates: J. Alan Sandblasted Calabash (685) (2012)
Product Number: 004-009-15616
Possibly one of the most iconic shapes in all of pipedom, here we find Jeff Gracik's own unique interpretation of the classic Calabash. Like the traditional design, it features a capacious cooling chamber and an overall sinuous form; unlike the classic, however, this particular rendition isn't fashioned from gourd. Hollowed out and topped with a hardwood cap, both the stummel and chamber are, indeed, briar. Presented here in a crisp sandblast, the fluid, tapered form is completely covered in rippling growth rings, with the warm, woodsy hues of the hardwood serving as a contrast of sorts. A modern smoker with a classic silhouette, my money's on this J. Alan.- Andrew Wike
