AKB Meerschaum: Smooth Cherrywood (Tekin) (with Case)
Product Number: 002-574-2663
Rendering a Cherrywood from meerschaum is a balancing act of sorts. The benefits are the natural beauty of the material itself (pale when new and developing warmth and color with enjoyment), the attractive qualities of the sort of detailed carving commonly applied to this medium, and the flavor-neutral smoking properties of meerschaum. The risk is that without some drastic alterations away from the classic form or use of an exceptionally dense block, a meerschaum Cherrywood is unlikely to sit; the bowl will just be too light. Lucky for you, this AKB rendition is perfectly balanced and perfect for sitting on a flat surface when not in use. Splendid work from Tekin.- Kaz Walters
