AKB Meerschaum: Carved Bent Apple (with Case)
Product Number: 002-574-4938
One of the most interesting renditions of this shape I have ever seen, AKB Meerschaum presents this bent Apple, full of textural intrigue and marvelous shaping. The stem is an arced length of tapering black acrylic, feeding into a lens-shaped shank that is slightly wider. The flanks of the shank are ridged, curving into the heel before dissipating with the cheeking at the transition, bowl seemingly growing out of the shank as a separate piece. The bowl is bulbous, with a decided flare at the waistline which tapers toward the rim, sloped aft imbuing the piece with a pleasing asymmetry. The stummel is dressed in a latticework pattern of circles, interrupted at random by textural carving, creating a feeling in the hand like no other. Stained black on its highest points, this pipe is sure to be a standout piece in any collection, or an excellent smoker.-John McElheny
