GH.ZHANG: Sandblasted Blowfish (David Huber) (04) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-937-0248

Guo Hui Zhang's passion for pipes began with his work as an importer and purveyor of pipe-making materials. Zhang's understanding of large-scale pipe logistics inspired an exciting idea: the mass production of high-quality, artisan pipes. In 2017, he opened the GH Zhang workshop and partnered with pipe makers around the world to achieve his vision. Each GH Zhang pipe is designed by a famous artisan pipe maker and shaped on a CNC machine before being finished by hand and fitted with stems by the team at GH Zhang. Offering more than 40 shapes in smooth and sandblasted finishes, GH Zhang presents pipe smokers with a rare opportunity to procure artisan-style pipes at an accessible price.

Taking inspiration from the Danish and Japanese pipe-making traditions, David Huber crafts highly organic compositions that prioritize sculpted lines and precise shaping cues. His distinctive style is represented by this "04" Blowfish by GH Zhang. An attractive composition, this piece boasts a plump, full-bodied bowl that stands at the fore of a flared shank and a demurely curved saddle stem. Like many renditions of the shape, the bowl here features several ridgelines that unevenly bifurcate the form's chamber walls and lend a pronounced asymmetry to the shape's silhouette. The gently curved shank-and-stem arrangement accentuates the bowl's subtle forward cant and encourages a comfortable smoking posture, the gently downturned stem posed for easy clenching. Dressing this particular "04" Huber is an auburn sandblast that highlights healthy grain throughout the stummel.
