Michail Kyriazanos: Smooth Acorn with Bamboo
Product Number: 002-629-0076
Consider the solid black turtleneck sweater. This is a very strange way to start off a pipe description, but bear with me. As an article of clothing, the solid black turtleneck looks a little odd on a lot of people, maybe even most people. And yet there is that small fraction of the population whom it really suits; they can look great in one where others would a bit of a goof.
The extra dark bamboo, medium/light contrast finish, and non-existent length of briar shank found on this Kyriazanos is a black turtleneck of a design combination. If you described it to me only in words (i.e. if I didn't see the pipe) I would most probably picture something that looked a little off — maybe a lot off. This Acorn is not off, not even a little. In fact I'd say it's very much on — on to something good. Through the right shaping of bowl, length of bamboo, rhythm of knuckles, and something, Michail managed to make a combination one part of my brain says shouldn't look right, look just right.
