American Estates: Chheda Partially Sandblasted Bent Apple with Maple (6) (260) (2015) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-009-20732
Based in Columbus, Ohio, Premal Chheda is one of the most well-respected American artisans, possessing an extensive portfolio of, primarily, classically-inspired shapes. Furthermore, Chheda has also taught many famous pipe-makers, such as Bill Shalosky and Micah Cryder, the craft firsthand, resulting in an incredibly influential legacy. This bent Apple by Premal Chheda possesses a plump bowl that fits snugly in hand, while the detailed sandblast provides plenty of tactile intrigue for one to appreciate. Out back, a broad transition leads to a thick, bent shank that gently tapers to a trim accent band fashioned from blonde-hued maple. A saddle stem tops things off, with a bulging stem base swiftly giving way to a sleek stretch of jet-black vulcanite. A muscular and gestural piece, this bent Apple will certainly entice anyone with an affinity for hearty briars.--Zach Podl
