AKB Meerschaum: Smooth Acorn (with Case)
Product Number: 002-574-4951
This Acorn from Turkish workshop AKB Meerschaum is decidedly gestural, possessed of a forward-urging bowl that sits atop a spurred heel with a rounded point that lends a wonderful posture for gripping, allowing the middle finger to wrap around it comfortably. The shank is bulbous and lithely curved, arcing into the black acrylic stem with supple linework, and transitioning with a very slight cheek. The bowl flares toward the rim, rising a bit to form a dome that curves to the chamber, creating an unmistakable profile with a gentle momentum that leads the eye along every line without fail.-John McElheny
