American Estates: Maigurs Knets Smooth Turtle with Horn (***) (378) (Unsmoked) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-009-30738

This Turtle from Maigurs Knets is an eclectic design that sees a floral bowl posed at the fore of a sweeping shank and a demurely curved saddle stem. The softly rounded bowl boasts a wrapping ridgeline that creates a protruding spur at the top fore reminiscent of a hornet's stinger, the look far removed from his usual takes on the signature shape: eschewing the larger size of the bowl and its more Shield-like ridge arrangement. This spur lends a touch of driving momentum to the composition, though it's balanced in profile by the shank-and-stem arrangement's subtly curvaceous build. The shank emerges from the low-set transition and flares outward, its rapid expansion drawing the eye toward the stem, which promotes a comfortable smoking posture. It's all dressed in a warm smooth finish that highlights stellar grain across the briar's surface, accented nicely by a broad accent of hardwood capped with a trim fitment of horn.
