Konstantin Shekita: Smooth Large Bent Apple Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-600-0027
This is the first piece we've received from Konstantin with "Large" in the actual shape title, and suffice to say, it certainly lives up to its name. This is one massive pipe, with tons of insulating briar to its chamber walls and a whole lot of extra substance throughout. The transition though relatively pinched is still stout and nearly as tall as the actual bowl itself, and overall it offers quite a firm, yet smooth feel in hand. Interestingly, the actual chamber dimensions here aren't that cavernous, more on par with your average Group 3 or 4 Stack — which means the focus here wasn't as much on providing infinitely long smokes, but offering a piece which would remain cool and mellow in hand all the way to the end of the bowl. If you're a fan of larger pipes, statement pieces, or Shekita's work in general, this unique Apple isn't one to be missed.
