Becker: Sandblasted Acorn (Two Clubs)
Product Number: 002-007-0768
Some of Federico Becker's Acorn renditions are of the taller, more slender variety, while this particular example opts for a more bulbous, rounded form. It's a more classically inclined iteration — the bulging waist of the bowl high-set toward the rim and the heel marked by a pointed spur, a common design cue in Becker's work, even outside the Acorn design. A long stretch of shank and stem lend the bowl a poised posture, and its forward cant emphasizes the profile's sleek and streamlined aesthetic. An impressively compact and lightweight piece, this Becker pipe has the makings of a reliable, on-the-go travel companion, being easily clenched when smoked and comfortably pocketed when not in use. The dark sandblast reveals fine strands of ring grain and will camouflage any handling marks that might occur over the years, while the variegated hues of the brindled vulcanite stem offer handsome accenting colors to the palette.-Truett Smith
