American Estates: J. Alan Smooth Acorn with Bamboo (1053) (2015) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-009-18420
One of the most talented pipe makers in North America, and the world for that matter, Jeff Gracik of J. Alan pipes fashions expertly engineered compositions that are highly sought after and admired for their shaping, grain, and excellent smoking properties. The American artisan's stylistic range is impressively diverse as Gracik is able to craft beautiful shape-chart standards as well as more complex, organically inspired designs. This sinuous Acorn ably demonstrates Jeff's talents with organic shapes and tasteful use of accenting materials.
This places a tapered bowl with bulbous, flared rim atop an elongated heel at the fore of sleek shank rendered from four knuckles of pale bamboo. Out back, a hand-cut vulcanite saddle stem offers a comfortable smoking posture, as well as a lithe silhouette. Dressed in a rich auburn finish, the stummel boasts impeccable flame grain all around the bowl.-Gabriel Bass
