AKB Meerschaum: Carved Viking (with Case)
Product Number: 002-574-4442
Though sure to draw the ire of history buffs, as there is no historical evidence that the Vikings actually donned horned helmets, this handsome meerschaum from Turkish workshop AKB depicts the Norseman as he exists in the eyes of pop culture. A billowing beard frames his face, one that speaks of great loss, as if he has witnessed the ascension of too many good men to Valhalla. Eyebrows furrowed, he looks out to an imaginary sea, horned helmet atop his head, displaying a diving eagle motif along its front. Carved expertly, this pipe is sure to acquire a beautiful patina as it is smoked, likely to match the acrylic stem of swirling amber and cream tones to which it is married.-John McElheny
