Grechukhin: Smooth Long Shank Blowfish (G)
Product Number: 002-497-0107
Over the past year Vladimir Grechukhin has begun sending these long-shanked Blowfish our way, and, though they have, as of yet, still been few in number, I won't hesitate to say that I think they've made up some his very best pipe designs on an individual level. At a glance, they're lovely, yes, but what really caught my attention about them is how Grechukhin shows his skills at playing the angles — i.e. creating a match of form and line that results in an interesting, attractive, and yet changing impression when the pipe is viewed in all manner of positions and orientations. Frankly I'm not surprised that both of the previous smooth-finished Long Shank Blowfish were, like this one, given Grechukhin's "G" stamp, the mark of a pipe Vladimir is particularly proud of.
