Grechukhin Design: Sandblasted Apple with Black Palm (G70) (A6/7)
Product Number: 002-808-0053
Personifying the design aesthetic of Russian artisan Vladimir Grechukhin, this Nosewarmer Apple balances supple curves and elegant gesture with robust proportions and hearty characteristics. Substantial in hand yet quite compact of overall length, this piece is part of Vladimir's Grechukhin Design line, presenting handmade pipes from Vladimir with the help of Alexander Tupitsyn — the former completing all the shaping and designing, while the latter carver takes care of the finishing process. This particular one wears a dark, light-depth sandblast with a beautifully grained, polished ferrule of black palm adorning the shank end, its lighter hues contrasting the rest of the piece's extra-dark color palette. The rim of the slight canted bowl is left smooth, tastefully dressed warm mahogany stain.-Truett Smith
