American Estates: C. Kent Joyce Smooth Egg (Unsmoked) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-009-20788

C. Kent Joyce was introduced to the world of tobacco pipes by a friend who gave him two pipes as a gift. Already a skilled craftsman, Joyce soon ordered a pre-drilled briar pipe kit and quickly took to the craft. Pipe makers such as Premal Chheda and Tyler Lane have helped Joyce sharpen his shaping skills and aesthetic eye, and he draws inspiration from the Japanese, Danish, and Russian styles, resulting in his eclectic, boundary-pushing portfolio.

This Egg by C. Kent Joyce features a shapely bowl, which bulges at the flanks while the fore and aft present broader contours. Furthermore, the bowl's forward-cant creates a palpable forward momentum, which is further enhanced by the sweeping shank out back. Said shank features crisp rectangular ridges on the top and underside and is adorned with an exotic hardwood accent, imbuing the composition with an eye-catching, organic flourish. Additionally, the stummel is dressed in a chestnut smooth finish, highlighting wispy vertical grain on the shank and a swath of mesmerizing birdseye on the fore.
