American Estates: Mark Tinsky Partially Sandblasted Calabash (SHPC/05) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-009-39215

Mark Tinsky has quite the storied history in American pipe making, founding the American Smoking Pipe Co. in 1978 and maintaining a consistent output for the over four decades that have elapsed since then. Tinsky lives in Montana and spends his days fly fishing and making pipes, bringing his many years of experience in the craft to every shape he fashions. He boasts a rather diverse portfolio, offering a wide range of shapes in a variety of unique finishes. Tinsky is also well known for his accenting work, incorporating everything from hardwoods to metals into his compositions. A fine showcase of Tinsky's style, this Calabash boasts a stocky bowl with a cinched waistline and a broad, overhanging rim. Said bowl is set to a sinuously bent shank-and-stem arrangement that promotes a comfortable smoking posture and lends a pronounced gesture to the shape's silhouette. A crisp, earth-toned sandblast highlights healthy grain across the stummel, save for the rim, which is left smooth for contrast.
