AKB Meerschaum: Carved Viking (with Case) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-574-6165
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, expression speaking to an intense ire, as if having discovered his war brother was a traitor. Eyebrows furrowed, his look skewers the betrayer with a gaze, 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
