Becker: Sandblasted Dublin (Three Clubs)
Product Number: 002-007-0760
Trim, lightweight, and impressively compact, this straight Dublin is a dynamic take on the shape chart standard that's immediately recognizable as the work of Federico Becker. Its silhouette is marked by sleek lines, a hint of forward cant, and a sharply pointed, jutting heel spur — all conventional aspects of Becker's shaping style. Measuring just shy of five inches in length and weighing only 20 grams, this example boasts pocket-friendly proportions and is a petite alternative to the bulky, palm-filling briars that are commonly associated with Italian pipemaking. Crisp of form and profile, this piece is equality crisp of finish; it's dressed in a concise, well-textured sandblast that has brought out tight waves of rippling grain. The stummel's natural hue is handsomely contrasted by the cumberland stem's mix of red and black tones, which should gradually complement the bowl's color as a patina begins to develop with time and use.- Jeffery Sitts
