Alexander Hasty: Sandblasted Billiard with Ox Horn Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-876-0021
American artisan Alexander Hasty produces muscular shapes with a clear Danish influence. This Billiard shape is a perfect example of the carver's sensibilities. While quite compact in terms of length, coming in under five inches from end to end, this piece sacrifices nothing in terms of chamber capacity or robustness, making it ideal for on-the-go smoking. The tall bowl rises proudly at the fore, its broad, plump heel tapering toward the rim in typical Danish fashion. The shank and stem maintain a keen sense of balance with one another, the shank nearly as long as the bowl is tall, while a saddle stem of jet-black vulcanite tops things off. A handsome, ruby-tinged sandblast dresses the stummel and brings vivid definition to the birdseye on either flank of the bowl and the cross grain across the fore, save for the rim, which is left smooth for a touch of tactile contrast. The lightweight nature of the design makes it a delight to hold, and it should clench quite comfortably between the teeth. It's a bold, handsome design that's further commended by a dark accent of genuine horn at the shank end that nearly perfectly harmonizes with the saddle stem's color.--Davin Hylton
