Ardor: Mercurio Freehand Sitter Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-004-3360
Reminiscent of the Cherrywood shape, though heavily modified, this Freehand from Ardor sits atop a flattened, central heel that's almost exactly beneath the transition. The bowl here pushes forward out of this transition, its fore wall quite robust and muscular as it curves out of the heel, capped with a broad, softly inflated rim. The transition itself is nearly parabolic, with plenty of room to drape a digit before it lifts near the aft and into the flaring shank. Said shank is trim and ends in a domed face that's peaked at the top, marking the start of a short ridgeline that pushes through the top of the shank and ceases at the center of the transition. Paired to a colorful, deeply bent stem accented with silver at the base, this pipe comes dressed in the warm auburn stain of the Mercurio finish, revealing handsome grain throughout.-John McElheny
