J. Alan: Smooth Swedish Tomato (1108) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-376-0187
Jeff Gracik's Swedish Tomato is something of a tribute to Bo Nordh's own interpretation of the shape. This influence is clearest perhaps in the subtle lift of the heel and the low-profile shank and stem configuration. As present as we find those cues, Jeff's also taken a number of steps to ensure the resulting form here is all his own. For one, the entire design has been beefed up, lending more substance to the chamber walls, transition, and shank alike. For another, rather than facing off the shank or lending it a diamond arrangement, Jeff's chosen to keep it oval, with rounded, rather than lenticular edges. It's a beautiful interpretation, and one prized by collectors around the globe not only for its play on a Nordh-influence, but for its superb smoking qualities as well.
