AKB Meerschaum: Smooth Calabash (with Case)
Product Number: 002-574-3663
While the Calabash shape, traditionally, is one crafted mainly from gourd, with a meerschaum cap for the chamber, many makers of meerschaum pipes have taken to crafting the entire form in the pale, porous material, such as this rendition from AKB Meerschaum. This sinuously bent interpretation, with a single beadline just below the domed rim, is a fine example and boasts a natural feel in hand while the stem's downturn offers excellent balance for hands-free smoking.- Andrew Wike
