Alexander Hasty: Sandblasted Bent Brandy with Ivorite Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-876-0008
A pipe that exemplifies Alexander Hasty's stylistic merging of Danish and American design cues, this bent Brandy combines the soft lines and supple curves often associated with Danish pipe making with the slightly inflated, muscular stoutness indicative of many pipes from American artisans. Despite those increased relative proportions, this pipe remains incredibly compact at under four-and-a-half inches in length, offering the convenience and light weight of a Nosewarmer but still with comfortable substance in hand. The bowl here is on the squatter side, tapering softly toward the rim, and the shank houses stout proportions, displaying a slight upward curve that's balanced out by the stem's downward turn. The stem also plays a significant factor in this composition's overall disposition: Instead of featuring the hard-lined shoulders of a traditional saddle stem, this mouthpiece exhibits a more rounded base that Alexander shaped to continue the lines of the shank into a domed aspect. Such a design cue complements the stummel's plump shaping and voluptuous curves, and the finish bespeaks artisan-level quality in a traditional color palette: a rich, contrast-stained sandblast accented by a wedding band of creamy Ivorite.-Truett Smith
