Becker: Sandblasted Strawberry Wood Dublin (Four Clubs)
Product Number: 002-007-0764
Incredibly lightweight and trim of form, this straight Dublin from Federico Becker offers a compact form but with a bowl of Stack-like height up front and, thus, more chamber depth than would normally be found in a pocket-friendly pipe. Shape-wise, the form is undeniably Becker, displaying the carver's angular aesthetic and conventional heel spur — created by slightly curving the shank's underside and extending it into the heel. To echo the heel, the pinched shank flares through the stem base and the canted orientation of the bowl lends the rim a sharply pointed silhouette at the fore. The color palette remains understated as Becker allows the strawberry wood's grooved grain to take center stage, accented by a lighter stain at the chamfered, innermost section of the rim and a stem of cumberland that displays smoky hues of dark gray and moss green — Federico having forgone his conventional use of the more common red-and-brown cumberland.-Truett Smith
