American Estates: Scottie Piersel Partially Sandblasted Pencil Shank Rhodesian (Unsmoked) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-009-20871

As a gift for her pipe-smoking husband, Scottie Piersel ordered a Mark Tinsky pipe kit to hand make a pipe for his collection. When she finished, Piersel was hooked. Today, Piersel has bloomed into a supremely talented pipe maker who primarily crafts traditional shapes. Additionally, Piersel values crisp line work, balanced proportions, and flawless drilling, which she incorporates into all of her pipes. Also, many Piersel pipes are instantly recognizable because of her trademark pencil shanks.

This Rhodesian by Scottie Piersel features a classic bowl, as the walls supplely flare from the heel to the broad waistline, and, from there, they take a linear taper to the rim. Furthermore, two beadlines adorn the waist, while the chamfered rim is dressed in a smooth finish. In contrast, the rest of the stummel is dressed in Piersel's signature Relief Contrast finish. First, Piersel stains and sandblasts the briar to reveal the organic, undulating growth rings. Then, she sands down the craggy growth rings and stains them a lighter color, manifesting a gorgeous visual dichotomy and an intriguing texture that toes the line between silky and rugged. Additionally, the stunning finish is complemented by a colorful stem, which is crafted from pewter-gray vulcanite.
