Michail Kyriazanos: Sandblasted Rhodesian with Wenge

Product Number: 002-629-0030

We've seen quite a few elegant English-classic shapes from Michail, but here he reaches back for a bit of Danish history instead. The long, continuous lower line from shank-end to rim-bevel, the high set of the edge and forward-posed taper of the bowl, the fine, upward-lifting transition, the fairly lengthy, tapered shank; many a fine pipemaker of the Danish school has made shapes like this for decades.

But then things get different. Light, jet-black sandblast? Nope. Michail went craggy, but warm, with a deeper blast, a wild crown of crisp plateau, and a dark burgundy-and-black for the stain. Vulcanite or horn for the mount? Nope: Wenge, an exotic African hardwood.
