J. Alan: Sandblasted Bent Egg with Silver (958)

Product Number: 002-376-0161

The second I saw this bad boy bent, a rather uncharacteristic, goofy grin started to play on my face and that embarrassing display became even more pronounced the moment that I picked it up. "Oh! Come to Poppa" (that actually reads a bit more creepy than I intended, sorry). On the rare occasion, you'll run across a spherical shape that almost seems to declare "Take a peek, THIS is how it's done". Then (more often) there are executions that trade off a small amount of classicism for an increased sense of "gotta hold it!" Then you have this sandblasted bent Egg from the one master who manages to avoid a compromise in either department: Jeff Gracik of J. Alan pipes

Gently prying this one out of my paw for appraisal; the killer grain, graceful lines and clarity of the overarching execution are undeniable attributes that a lucky owner will take pride in for decades to come. Still, I would be willing to bet that most of the time he won't be thinking about that. He'll just be loving how the pipe feels in the hand, and the accompanying righteous smoke.
